The Good War: An Oral History of World War II - Studs Terkel

Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.


Studs Terkel


Studs Terkel (born May 16, 1912) made frequent and brilliant use of oral histories. He documented stories from World War II and the Great Depression as well as Americans' feelings about work.
