About the Author:

Dr. Rodney P. Carlisle is a professor emeritus of Rutgers University. He received his AB degree from Harvard College and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. He most recently served as general editor of the award-winning Encyclopedia of Politics: The Left and Right (2005) and authored The Iraq War (2004).

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—In this volume, readers are skillfully guided through the critical episodes of this period and introduced to colorful characters of American history ranging from military hero Douglas MacArthur to the notorious outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. The work is prefaced by a lucid general introduction covering the history of the Great Depression, the New Deal, World War II, and American arts and culture of the time. Each signed chapter focuses on topics from the fabric of daily life such as social attitudes, religion, transportation, labor, and education and concludes with a valuable list of titles for further reading. Sidebars present key figures and concepts while numerous well-chosen black-and-white photos, maps, and charts add depth to stunning social commentary. Whether exploring the wartime home front or the dislocations of the Depression, this volume presents readers with the compelling and harrowing stories of America's "Greatest Generation." With a combination of excellent writing, manageable length, and compelling subject matter, it will be an indispensable resource for research papers and AP classes. It will also serve as a companion to titles in the "Daily Life through History Series" (Greenwood).—Brian Odom, Pelham Public Library, AL

Book Description Facts on File Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Two major historical events dominated the period from 1929 to 1949: the Great Depression and World War II. When the stock market crashed in October of 1929, economic hardship struck many American citizens. Over the next 10 years the economy fell into a deep depression, alleviated only by vast government expenditures on wartime materials manufactured in the 1940s. Meanwhile, World War II dominated the political arena. Most significantly, the development and implementation of the nuclear bomb on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki changed the practice of warfare and international diplomatic relations forever, ushering in the arms and space race with the Soviet Union, also known as the Cold War.
