Abstract:

This DVD set examines the most significant events in America since the turn of the century. Our nation under attack on her own soil, a natural disaster destroying one of her major cities, Americans facing the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, and the nation's infrastructure deteriorating. It is also a decade of hope. The country elected its first African American president, the internet connected people in ways unimaginable just ten years ago, and mapping the human genome gives the promise of a brighter, healthier future.
