Reading Guide and Questions for  Homeward Bound,  Introduction and  Chapter 1 Introduction As you read the Introduction of May’s book remember what is important—identifying the  book’s overall argument.  Remember, as with Gerstle, that the Introduction is where the author  lays out her/his argument most explicitly.  Take notes and engage with the book as you read.  Here are some questions for to think about as you go through the Intro.  I’ve tried to put these in  the order that their answers appear in the text. 1. There was a “baby boom” in the post-World War II United States as families had more  babies than ever before right after the war.  May argues that other scholars and observers  have argued that this is related to the postwar prosperity that existed in the U.S.  Why  does she reject this?  What evidence does she rely upon for her rejection?
