It documents the major events of the period as they unfolded each day, including all of the social, economic, political, and cultural issues that defined each decade.

-- An introduction to each decade and each year under review
-- A full index that provides ready access to individual items
-- A chronology of each day's events, arranged in vertical columns under ten separate subject headings:

-- The Americas
-- Asia and the Pacific
-- U.S. Politics and Social Issues
-- U.S. Foreign Policy and Defense
-- U.S. Economy and Environment
