America - The Last Best Hope: Volume 3, by William Bennett

Another good compilation of history from William J. Bennett, this time from the years 1988 to 2008. America - The Last Best Hope Volume III: From the Collapse of Communism to the Rise of Radical Islam (Thomas Nelson, 2011, ISBN 9781595554284) records advances and setbacks between political parties and the uncertainties Americans faced due to turbulent economic times.

During this time, the Berlin Wall came down, terrorism became the number one threat to Americans, and the U.S. elected the first African American president. For those interested in a topographical view of the major events that happened during those two decades, this book would be a good choice.
