About this item
This two-volume reference for high school and up investigates returning veterans’ civilian lives at work, in the family, in public and private organizations, and in politics, and examines challenges for their physical and mental health. Volume 1 begins with an introduction to veterans’ studies and an overview of the characteristics of veterans compared to non-veterans in 20th-century America. This is followed by two chapters on the transition from active duty and the Department of Defense’s Transitions Assistance Program (TAP). Later chapters in Volume 1 deal with issues such as job training, employment, higher education, civic engagement, veterans as entrepreneurs and as private security contractors, and retirement patterns. Volume 2 continues with chapters on physical and mental health, suicide, and portrayal of veterans in the media. This volume features a set of chapters on various populations, including women, immigrants, gay and lesbian veterans, transgender veterans, racial and ethnic minority vets, and homeless veterans.
