Summary
"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 Americans. Over the next 10 years the economy fell into a deep depression, alleviated only by vast government expenditures on wartime materials manufacturing when the United States entered World War II in 1941. America's social and cultural life underwent profound changes during this period, with women and minorities finding new opportunities as a consequence of the war. Great strides were also made in science and technology"--P. [4] of cover
