History - American


Days of Sadness, Years of Triumph
The American People, 1939–1945
Geoffrey Perrett

First published in 1973, Geoffrey Perrett's portrait of war-time America was immediately hailed as a major retrospective. Perret vividly describes the social, political, and economic fabric of American domestic life from 1939 to 1945, and argues that the World War II years precipitated a crucial, if silent social revolution at home — one that continues to reverberate today.

Geoffrey Perret holds a master's degree from Harvard University. He is the author of five books, including Between Two Worlds: America in the Twenties.
