The bestselling historians turn their focus to America's role in the world since the end of World War II

Schweikart, author of the number one New York Times bestseller A Patriot's History of the United States , and Dougherty take a critical look at America, from the postwar boom to her search for identity in the twenty-first century.

The second volume of A Patriot's History of the Modern World picks up in 1945 with a world irrevocably altered by World War II and a powerful, victorious United States. But new foes and challenges soon arose: the growing sphere of Communist influence, hostile dictatorships and unreliable socialist allies, the emergence of China as an economic contender, and the threat of world Islamification.

The book reestablishes the argument of American exceptionalism and the interplay of our democratic pillars--Judeo-Christian religious beliefs, free market capitalism, land ownership, and common law--around the world.

Schweikart and Dougherty offer a fascinating conservative history of the last six decades.

“There is no such thing as an “unbiased” history class: The right-wing backlash against AP U.S. history masks a deeper problem with how and what we teach – The AP U.S. history standards were revised to appease critics who champion American exceptionalism”
