The sixth and final volume in the History of Wisconsin series examines the period from 1940-1965, in which state and nation struggled to maintain balance and traditions. Some of the major developments analyzed in this volume include: coping with three wars, racial and societal conflict, technological innovation, population shifts to and from cities and suburbs, and accompanying stress in politics, government, and society as a whole. Using dozens of photographs to visually illustrate this period in the state's history, this volume upholds the high standards set forth in the previous volumes.
L'autore: William F. Thompson is Wisconsin's state historian and has been head of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin research office since 1964. A native Californian and a graduate of Stanford University, he came to the state in 1952 as a graduate student and completed his Ph. D. degree under the legendary book The Image of War, a Civil War history and a landmark study in the use of pictorial resources for studying the past. Thompson also has served for years on Madison's parks commission, including several as its president.
