Concentrating on the United States, this book reveals the changes brought about in the aftermath of wars--changes to government policy, to industry, to science and technology, and social structures.

After the Shooting Stops includes the aftermath of war as described in these chapters:
1. After the Revolution
2. Fighting for Territory
3. Between Wars
4. Rebuilding
5 Rebels and Reformers
6. The Aftermath of World War I
7. In the Shadow of the Atomic Bomb
8. A Shell-Shocked Society
9. After the Cold War
From the Introduction:
Wars are a major part of the relatively short history of the United States.... War stories and memoirs fill the pages of thousands of books.... But what about the aftermath of war? What happened after the shooting stopped? How did wars change the United States? These are some of the questions discussed in the book.

Professional Reviews

School Library Journal review
Focusing on American history, the Gays examine the immediate and long-term social, political, and technological changes that have followed U.S. involvement in major wars. They look at what became of the soldiers and the civilians, and at the effects on the economy as a result of such conflicts as the American Revolution, Wolrd Wars I and II, the Vietnam War, and the Gulf War. Background information on each era is provided and the causes for the fighting are described in context. When discussing the Civil War, Reconstruction is detailed, as is a brief history of the birth and development of the KKK. Gulf War syndrome is mentioned in relation to that conflict. This solid addition offers an alternative slant to many traditional historical accounts.
