Book Description

Retaining all the well-loved features from the previous editions, The Making of a Superpower: USA 1865-1975 has been approved by AQA and matched to the 2015 AQA specification. With a strong focus on skills building and exam practice, this book covers in breadth issues of change, continuity, and cause and consequence in this period of American history through key questions such as how did the role of the USA in world affairs change, and how united was the USA during
