The Home-Front War: World War II and American Society

Synopsis

This book is a collection of nine essays examining the impact of World War II on the American people. The contributions range from "macro" studies (the ways corporations sought to recruit women into the work force) to "micro" studies (the impact of the war on working conditions in Indiana) to biography (the Congressional career of Margaret Chase Smith). Focusing as it does on the domestic scene, this study offers a comprehensive selection of the impact of the war on Americans, and the way it influenced concepts of gender, race, class, and ethnicity.
