This popular classic text chronicles America's roller-coaster journey through the decades since World War II. Considering both the paradoxes and the possibilities of post-war America, Chafe portrays the significant cultural and political themes that have colored our country's past and present, including issues of race, class, gender, foreign policy, and economic and social reform. He examines such subjects as the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement, the origins and the end of the Cold War, the culture of the 1970s, the Reagan years, the Clinton presidency, and the events of September 11th and their aftermath. In this edition, Chafe provides an insightful assessment of Clinton's legacy as president, particularly in light of his impeachment, and an entirely new chapter that examines the impact of two of America's most pivotal events of the twenty-first century: the 2000 presidential election turmoil and the September 11th terrorist attacks. Chafe puts forth an excellent account of George W. Bush's first year as president and also covers his subsequent role as a world leader following his administration's declared war on terrorism. The completely revised epilogue and updated bibliographic essay offer a compelling and controversial final commentary on America's past and its future. Brilliantly written by a prize-winning historian, the fifth edition of The Unfinished Journey is an essential text for all students of recent American history.

In this gripping, brilliantly written narrative, prize-winning historian William Chafe offers a vibrant chronicle of America's roller-coaster journey through the past forty-five years. Now revised and expanded to assess the impact of the Reagan years, The Unfinished Journey offers substantial new material on Reagan's first legislative victories, the rise of Mikhail Gorbachev and improved relations with the Soviet Union, and the Iran-Contra affair. Chafe examines the Reagan credo in detail, explores the conditions in American society that helped Reagan gain the presidency and stay in power for eight years, and surveys the effects of conservative policies on the economic, social, and cultural fabric of America. In addition, Chafe looks briefly at the first years of the Bush administration, and adds an epilogue analyzing America's prospects in the 1990s. Compelling and controversial, The Unfinished Journey captures the pulse of the nation, and brings its recent history to life.

Inspired by love of country, her Italian heritage, and this nation’s ongoing quest to raise its children to aspire and achieve their greatest dreams, Jeanne Allen wrote An Unfinished Journey, which uniquely challenges us to think big about the education of our youth. The author—a well-known pioneer and veteran of education policy, politics, and culture—provides a compendium of powerful yet brief essays that will have parents, policy makers, and the general public both laughing and crying at the way the nation’s education institutions have developed or mishandled all that it takes to help children achieve their greatest potential. From musings on Columbus Day to how kids behave in school and from the role of parents to politicians, this book is a uniquely informative and instructive firsthand account of the people, policies, and players that have shaped American education and why it matters. Combining a fascinating personal story with political acumen from more than thirty years in the arena, Allen paves the road to finishing the journey to the American dream.

In this compelling narrative, veteran missionary Friday Ganda finds himself in a dilemma, whether to continue pursuing his beloved teaching career, or answer the call and save souls for Christ. At a young age, having started a magnificent teaching career, found a wonderful wife, and settled in a small town, his local church turns to him so that he might become their pastor. He flees. He ends up in another church, which takes even a shorter time to ask him to be their pastor and believe it or not, he flees again and the next church he joins asks the same. Eventually, Friday realizes that when the Lord sets you on fire for Him, you can do nothing but burn, and people will come and watch you. He realizes you cannot win against the Lord's call and therefore he pursues it.
