In the years after World War II, America became the world's greatest power. All the People discusses the U.S.A.'s uneasiness with its postwar role as global policeman even as we fought to keep countries across the world from becoming part of the Soviet Union's communist empire. There were battles at home, too, with the Civil Rights movement and opposition to the Vietnam War. Truman, Stalin, Khrushchev, Ho Chi Minh, Thrugood Marshall, JFK, LBJ, Malcolm X, Cesar Chavez, Bill Clinton--even the Beatles--star in this exciting final chapter of A History of US.
