Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intriguing short introduction! I liked this short and quick summary lectures of last tow decades of The US on multiple perspectives. Hope there will be a lengthier course on the 21st century America to learn more on the sub topics briefly introduced in this one

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacking critical perspective I appreciate the wide scope of these lectures, which is basically a condensed version of the "America After the Cold War: The First 30 years". It is a good, bird's eye view on the major events of the new millennium . However, it'd be hard to make a video lecture that praises America more than this one, without seeming like propaganda. Professor Allitt is unabashedly enthusiastic and optimistic about America, and it shows throughout the lecture. While there are glancing mentions of wealth inequality, good portions of the lecture are apologetic about America. Overall, I appreciate Allitt's view, but I will also be seeking out a more critical perspective on America's contemporary history.

The Political Scene, 2001–2016

01: The Political Scene, 2001–2016

Professor Allitt investigates the good and the bad of the first decade-and-a-half of the 21st century. From examining the events surrounding—and ramifications of—9/11 through the polarizing election of 2016, he surveys a turbulent fifteen-year span which brought to America huge shifts in technology, politics, social reforms, economics, and more. This period laid the groundwork for a culture that currently feels more divided than it has since the Civil War.
