    The Second World War transformed the USA from an isolationist regional player to a global superpower; but since the 1970s it has experienced a long, slow and - for many - bewildering decline in its economic, political and military reach. This wide-ranging and absorbing history charts American post-war achievements and challenges, including the Civil Rights movement, Vietnam and the Cold War, and examines the political, cultural and economic factors that have pulled the nation in often conflicting directions.
