Topic: The U.S. and “War” in the 20th Century (and beyond) Using World War II in particular, but you can link your ideas to other U.S. wars, how has “war” shaped the United States? You might, in particular, think about the kinds of impacts these “wars” had on the U.S. in the 1940s and 1950s as well as more lasting impacts. Explain your response. _______________________ NOTE: *An informal citation follows the quote in parentheses and looks like this: (Name the author of the source here first, “Name the title of the source second,” If it is from a larger work name the title of the work here in italics–American Yawp Reader for example, and if it is from a website use , finish with the date you accessed the page) Example: “Citation is still annoying, but really important.” (Blake Johnson, “Week 3 Assignment,” HIST-7B-47989-F19 https://peralta.instructure.com/courses/26135/assignments/165063Accessed [put date here]) _______________________ Tips: You can (but don’t have to!) consider any of the following: How did the United States change in response to World War II? Were these changes temporary or permanent? What does being in a continuing state of “war” or conflict in the 1940s do to the United States? (What does it do to the U.S. today?) What could have been different in the 1940s had there not been a “World War II?” What were “positive” or “negative” impacts of “war” on different aspects of the United States in the 1940s? (Today?) What could have been “positive” or “negative” impacts of “peace” on different aspects of the United States in the 1940s? (Today?)
