Synopsis

The USA, 1917-1980 by Nigel Smith

Written to meet the requirements of the Modern World History specifications for GCSE, The USA 1917-1980 is an in-depth study of a nation which, during the period studied, transformed itself from a position of isolationism to that of world superpower. At that same time, it faced internal divisions over racial, social, economic, and political issues. Students will find this book a fascinating introduction to one of the leading nations in the twentieth century.

About the Author

Nigel Smith

Nigel Smith has been a journalist, busker, TV comedy producer and script writer, winning an award for his BBC 4 radio comedy, VENT, based on his own life-threatening brain illness. More importantly, he has been - and still is - an embarrassing Dad. Much like Natalia Buttface, his three children are continually mortified by his ill-advised trousers, comedic hats, low quality jokes, poorly chosen motor vehicles, unique sense of direction and unfortunate ukulele playing. Unlike his hero Ivor Bumole, he doesn't write Christmas cracker jokes for a living. Yet.
