Abstract:

America's entry into WWII proved a huge engine of social and economic change. The African-American middle class emerged as the desperate need for workers overcame many longstanding employment prejudices. Near war's end, President Roosevelt signed the GI Bill, unleashing an unforeseen array of consequences - including the rapid growth of the suburbs, and dramatic increases in marriage and birth rates. Alfred Kinsey released his far-reaching works on human sexuality in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Though some of his data would not hold up under reexamination, his numbers were ultimately less important than the impact of his work on social reform.
