About this item

Scheibach makes no attempt to confirm the effectiveness of civil defense, its public acceptance, its ultimate success or failure, or the actual number of women who participated directly or indirectly during the 1950s and early 1960s. Rather, he explores the many and diverse opportunities for women not only to become involved in the nation's civil defense program, but also to become an essential component of it. He discusses call to duty, beyond containment, organized support, on guard, aid and comfort, be prepared, and out of the kitchen. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
