University of Miami History Department professor Donald Spivey lectures on World War II. He plays a recording of radio advertisements (in one of which, Orson Welles recommends purchasing war bonds) to illustrate the impact of the wartime economy on the American people. He explains that the war created jobs throughout the country. Recalling some slogans of the period, Spivey describes the impact of the war on civil liberties, particularly Executive Order Number 9066, passed in 1942, which permitted "relocation of Japanese Americans" on the West Coast.
