From the Back Cover:

In the convulsive years between 1920 and 1941, Americans were first dazzled by unprecedented economic prosperity and then beset by the worst depression in their history. It was the era of Model T's, rising incomes, scientific management, electricity, talking movies, and advertising techniques that sold a seemingly endless stream of goods. But it was also a time of grave social conflict and human suffering.

About the Author:

Michael E. Parrish teaches twentieth-century American history at the University of California, San Diego, and is the author of two previous books.
