Summary
"The 1920s constituted a decade of change and contrast, when modern America began to emerge from the shadow of World War I. The Roaring Twenties recounts this era by examining many of its aspects: Prohibition, political scandal, expatriates, women's suffrage, technological advances, prosperity, trials on evolution and espionage, and finally the stock market crash. The author captures the complexities of the 1920s and brings to life the various events that occurred during this tumultuous yet exhilarating decade." "The Roaring Twenties provides hundreds of firsthand accounts of the period - from diary entries, letters, speeches, and newspaper accounts - that illustrate how historical events appeared to those who lived through them. Among the eyewitness testimonies included are those of Woodrow Wilson, Louis Armstrong, History Cabot Lodge, Warren Harding, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Will Rogers, W.E.B. DuBois, Ernest Hemingway, and Henry Ford."--Jacket
