Since 1970: Histories of Contemporary America

Since 1970 focuses on U.S. history and culture since the 1970s, with a particular emphasis on books that either connect that decade to a longer trajectory or focus entirely on the last quarter of the twentieth century. The series welcomes a wide range of topics and is interdisciplinary by design. The ideal project addresses the recent past and is methodologically innovative. Since 1970 features titles in social and cultural history, including LGBTQ history; American studies; the history of science, environment, and technology; the history of race, immigration, and ethnicity; and political history.
