In the latest volume of the America in the Twentieth Century series, Serrianne chronicles the decade of the 1990s from the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The post-Cold War and pre-War on Terror era was a unique moment in history regarding both foreign and domestic policies. Serrianne analyzes the cultural changes of the 1990s, including issues of race relations, women's rights, and the LGBT movement. Backlash to the Civil Rights movement, the Conservative Revolution, Reaganomics in the 1980s, and the election of Bill Clinton created a decade in which both sides of the political spectrum sought to gain their footing. Combining a vivid narrative with informed analysis, America in the Nineties enriches our understanding of that pivotal era.
