Offered: Fall of even years.
US Group. United States society changed dramatically as the nation moved toward World War II, fought it and won. During the Great Depression Americans spoke of "the American way of life" filled with many forms of segregation and an entrenched economic order; afterwards, they spoke of "the American Dream" filled with promises of equality and progress. Using the themes of race, class, gender and ethnicity, examines the changes Americans created as they moved to fight a total war and wound-up fighting a cold one; all in the pivotal decades of the 1940s and 1950s. Fall of even years. (DICO)(WRCO)
