Abstract

Case histories from the Berkeley Guidance cohort--the Depression experience of middle and working class women and the military experience of their sons--demonstrated that (1) economic adversity enhanced middle class resilience and health while negatively affecting working class women's health and (2) military service gave men of deprived childhoods greater motivation and ability to improve their lives.
