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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."an excellent collection. The nine contributors by World War II scholars focus on a wide range of home-front concerns, including working women, racial issues, democracy, domestic experience, Hollywood, and opportunities for a middle-class lifestyle. A bibliography follows each contributor's chapter, and, at the end, a comprehensive bibliography identifies more than 500 items written in the past ten years on various aspects of the subject. The currency of this work makes it an excellent source for scholars. A splendid choice for libraries where there is an interest in World War II."-Library Journal
