Civil Defense Begins at Home:
Militarization Meets Everyday Life in the Fifties
Laura McEnaney

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"[A] superb social history of American civil defense programs in the 1950s. . . . I highly recommend [the book] to anyone interested in this important phase of postwar American political development."--Andrew D. Grossman, Journal of Cold War Studies

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This book argues compellingly that the debate over civil defense in the 1950s contributed significantly to the militarization of American culture. McEnaney's real contribution is to broaden our understanding of military and domestic policy in the 1950s. Her work on gender is extremely important here, and her final chapter on race and class adds an important dimension to our sense of Cold War military policy."--Allan M. Winkler, Miami University
