Even before the United States officially entered World War II, American women began to map out a far-reaching agenda for the postwar world. This new book by Judy Barrett Litoff and David C. Smith is a collection of primary documents that demonstrate the active part women played in the construction of 'peace . . . to emerge from this war.'
What Kind of World Do We Want? American Women Plan for Peace is an essential resource for courses focusing on women's history, American history, and the World War II era.
