SOCIAL PROBLEMS ON THE HOME FRONT

Sub-titled A Study of War-Time Influences, this is a scholarly, analytical analysis of the differential effects of World War II upon the social problems, intensifying some, alleviating others, and creating new ones, in our society under the pressure of total war. Here are considered the nature of wartime in its relation to social, familial and personal mobility, its relation to family disorganization, childhood, adolescence, sex offenses, prostitution, delinquency, crime, and personal adjustments. In addition to examining, measuring and explaining these social problems under wartime conditions, the author makes considered comparisons of these problems in peacetime settings. Observant, well-documented commentary- but largely for college bookshelves.
