1. Which development caused the greatest change in American society in the immediate postwar years: increased affluence, the migration to the suburbs, the entry of women into the workforce, or the “baby boom”? Explain fully as you can. The development of change in America society in the immediate postwar years was the entry of women in the workforce. Before all those changes women were expected to stay home and take care of the kids and cook and do all the duties a “woman should only do”. Very few women actually had jobs but after the wars they began to stick up for themselves and began to have their own voices. To make things more official, WWI proved women long to the rest of the world that women were actually useful in the workplace. When the men had to flee to go fight, women had to fill their positions. I believe that all these actions gave women empowerment to be demanded that they be treated equally to men . To my point of view the real big change in the American society was the migration to the suburbs. It was when the “middle class” was first developed; it meant that when people began to move to these areas, they were showing that they had some finical stability, that they were neither poor nor rich. This caused the greatest change because it gave "poor" people the hope that there is a social area that they can be in considered not so rich yet not poor. Though all these changes mostly leaned towards the whites, because as the blacks migrated to the suburbs they weren’t not as warmly welcomed as the whites were there was a lot of racism at the time still but within the next years there would be many more changes. .

2. Was Eisenhower’s seeming caution and inactivity a lack of vigorous leadership or a wise prudence in the exercise of power? Give 2 examples, explaining as fully as you can. In the research that I did they see it as a combination of both, most generals who were used to barking out orders and having them followed immediately fail to recognize the intrinsic difficulties that lay in the political arena. Grant also suffered from this (his own party who elected him were put off by his policies). Though well meaning, he was sadly exposed as a poor leader as a President, Eisenhower's energies on problems seemed only to be directed only towards issues of foreign policy. - inactivity-a-lack-of-vigorous-leadership-or-a-wise . I did some extra research and indeed it was a combination of both, Eisenhower was a combination of both a vigorous leader and a wise prudence. Eisenhower reacted cautiously to the beginnings of the civil rights movement but sent troops to Little Rock to enforce court orders for desegregation. His domestic policies were moderately conservative; they left most of the New Deal in place. Also his foreign policies were generally cautious. He avoided military involvement in Vietnam, although aiding Diem, and pressured Britain, France, and Israel to resolve the Suez crisis. “Eisenhower began on a grand

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
