A tumultuous stock market, a media obsessed with celebrity and scandal, a time new technologies were rocking society: the 1920s bear more than a little semblance to today, and 1927 is a snapshot of the period. Photographs and illustrations bring to life a year with astonishing parallels to the present. "[An] encyclopedic study with all the verve and excitement of a finely tuned novel.... An outstanding book." — Library Journal

From the Inside Flap:

1927 presents a year in detail: a "distant mirror" of the present? “Silent Cal” Coolidge was president. The wits at the Algonquin Table quaffed martinis and traded quips. Flappers, world peace, and an underclass left out of an economic boom were among the themes of the day. African Americans were struggling to shake off the legacy of the slave years. The free market was just that, even less restrained than today’s, and no end seemed to be in sight to burgeoning prosperity -- at least for those on top.

About the Author:

Gerald Leinwand, Ph.D., is President Emeritus of Western Oregon University. Founding Dean of the School of Education at Bernard M. Baruch College of the City University of New York, he is the author of more than forty books, including The Pageant of World History. He lives in New York.
