Pres. Rhetoric, 15: Mobilizing the Home Front: War Bonds and Domestic Propaganda
"In Mobilizing the Home Front, James J. Kimble marshals archival documents, public appeals, and a wealth of internal memoranda, reports, and surveys to offer a new understanding of the government's eight war bond drives and the psyche of the nation at war. Kimble's revisionist perspective of wartime America also casts light on the continuing impacts of this propaganda effort on American culture today."--Jacket.
