About this title

Synopsis:

Explores the history and implementation of the Servicemen's Readjustment Act, better known as the GI bill, that gave veterans unemployment benefits, educational opportunities, and home ownership

From Library Journal:

Greenberg (emeritus, government, American Univ.) served in World War II and earned his academic degrees under the G.I. Bill of Rights. He describes the history of the legislation (officially entitled The Serviceman's Readjustment Act of 1944) and discusses the importance, success, and lasting legacy of the bill. Its major benefits are discussed in detail: financial support while unemployed, assistance for educational programs ranging from specific job training to higher education, and loans for home, business, and farm ownership. Although much of this information is covered in Michael J. Bennett's When Dreams Come True: The G.I. Bill and the Making of Modern America (LJ 1/97), Greenberg's inclusion of many photographs and personal stories of U.S. servicemen and -women creates a more memorable and compelling account. This book (the companion guide to the PBS broadcast in October) is recommended for public and academic collections.?Barbara S. Meagher, Central Connecticut State Univ., New Britain
