Review:

Burns delivers history with flair and vividness. "

A work of genuine historical research, colorful personality, intellectual sophistication, heft, and durable interest. "

Extremely readable. Burns s vigorous narrative is rich in genuinely engaging anecdote. He so clearly appreciates history s sweep. "

In a fascinating work about a remarkable year, former NBC News correspondent Burns shows us what put the roar in the Roaring '20s. Burns follows it all with verve. In this delightfully readable book, the author expertly shows how those affected by the Great War linked together, nourished each other and really did change the world. "

A thorough tour of the upheavals and events of the year when the Roaring Twenties first began to roar. An entertaining and informative look at a pivotal period. Burns makes it possible to recognize the century to come in this intimate study of a single year, and the result is downright fascinating. "
