Abstract

In the growing field of war and social studies, American historians have concentrated on the role of government in the mobilization of the armed forces and the economy. This study is the first full length monograph to look at the demobilizayion and economic reconversion in the difficult period immediately following the Second World War. Drawing extensively on modern military branch records, the presidential libraries, and a wide arrange of congressional documents, the author presents an administrative overview generally in sympathy with the policies of the Truman presidency.
