Updates to this 3rd edition includes:The one-step-forward, one-half-step-back pace of the economy's recovery from one of the worst recessions in U.S. history. Elements here would include the federal government's efforts; the stubborn unemployment problem and the deepening divide between the very wealthy, and the poor and middle class.The rise of the Tea Party, and the deep and bitter divisions between political parties and even geographic regions of the country. This would include a look at Obamacare as symbolic of the issues sparking partisan rancor, as well as the 2010 and 2012 election results.The country's delicate - and precarious - balancing act between functioning as the world's preeminent economic, military and political power, and a growing feeling among many Americans that the rest of the world should take care of its own problems.The rapid rise and impact of social media such as Twitter and Facebook on nearly every aspect of American life, from popular culture to politics to crime-fighting to cyber-bullying - and the potential and realities of government and others spying and prying on us.

An award-winning political journalist and history writer for more than three decades, Steve Wiegand has worked as a reporter and columnist for the San Diego Evening Tribune , the San Francisco Chronicle , and the Sacramento Bee , where he currently covers state government and politics.During his career, he has interviewed four presidents and six California governors—and has the dubious distinction of once being airsick and throwing up on the shoes of the state attorney general's wife.It may have been his greatest personal contribution to world history.Wiegand is a graduate of Santa Clara University, where he majored in American literature and U.S. history. He also holds a Master of Science degree in Mass Communications from California State University, San Jose.In addition to The mental_floss History of the World , Wiegand is the author of U.S. History for Dummies , Sacramento Tapestry , and Papers of Permanence , a contributing author to mental_floss presents: Forbidden Knowledge , and a frequent contributor to mental_floss magazine.He lives in Northern California.
