Couverture de l’ouvrage The united states in world war ii: a documentary reader (hardback) (series: uncovering the past: documentary readers in american history)
World War II profoundly changed America: not only did it serve as the impetus for far-reaching changes in all aspects of life at home, but it also dramatically altered the perception of America internationally. This reader offers 60 essential primary documents for the period 1939-1945 that illustrate the political, diplomatic, and military history of the conflict while also highlighting the important economic, social, and cultural changes.

Editor G. Kurt Piehler captures the diversity of experiences of Americans who lived through the war, including the perspectives of presidents and generals, war workers and GIs, women and men, African Americans and Asian Americans, and refugees fleeing Hitler&rsquo,s Germany. It includes such documents as the Atlantic Charter and Franklin Roosevelt&rsquo,s Congressional address requesting a declaration of war against Japan, as well as readings on the experiences of GIs on the home front, the struggle to find day care for the children of women war workers, debates over the American response to the Holocaust, and the quest for justice by ethnic, racial, and religious minorities.

Bringing together well-known documents that are crucial to any study of the period with many enlightening documents that have never been published, The United States in World War II offers a balanced account of the social and political forces that combined to make the American war experience unique and transformative.
