schema:description"This book provides a look at one of the most tempestuous decades in recent American history, describing the everyday activities of Americans as they dealt first with war, and then a difficult transition to peace and prosperity. More than 150 articles provide a revealing look at one of the most tempestuous decades in recent American history, The "Greatest Generation" fought in Europe and the Pacific; women staffed production lines, the first Baby Boomers were born, and Studebaker led the postwar design change in automobiles. What was everyday life like in the 1940s? What did people watch, read, play? What inspired them and brought them joy? The two-volume set contains over 175 articles describing everyday life on the American home front during World War II and the immediate postwar years. This work drills down to the popular culture of the 1940s, bringing the details of the lives of ordinary men, women, and children alive. It covers a broad range of everyday activities throughout the 1940s, including movies, radio programming, music, the birth of commercial television, advertising, art, bestsellers, and other topics. The decade was divided almost evenly between war (1940-1945) and peace (1946-1950), and the articles point up the continuities and differences between these two periods. Filled with photographs, it serves as a resource for an overview of life in the United States during a decade that helped shape the modern world."@en
