Publisher's Summary

America in the 1920s was a place of drama, tension, and hedonism. It glittered and seduced: jazz, flappers, the birth of Hollywood, and a glamorous gangster-led crime scene flourishing under prohibition.

But it was also punctuated by momentous events. such as the political show trials and the huge Ku Klux Klan march. It also produced a splendid array of writers, musicians, and film stars, from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Bessie Smith and Charlie Chaplin.

This is an exhilarating portrait of the era of invention, glamour and excess.

    "Very Good"

    Very informative and entertaining too. Although you can only cover so much of a decade in one book this one does a great job.

    "Fascinating social history"

    I'm doing a lot of 20th century history at the moment and this is a good read. It concentrates just on the 1920s, but what a decade! Politics, gangsters, high finance, movies and scandal - it's all here. The world changed radically and this book gives you a great picture of social changes and great events.

    This book goes nicely with a weekend of hot jazz, Nancy Mitford's novels and your granny's cocktail recipes!
