Klappentext

A popular history of the U.S. in the decade preceding World War II copiously illustrated with photographs. The author, relying heavily on the files of The New York Times (for whom he was a long-time reporter), presents what he calls a "journalistic reprise" (rather than a scholastic history) that, while centered on the political effects of the New Deal and the road to war, also explores the worlds of sports, literature, crime, and other social aspects of the decade.



Zusammenfassung
In unforgettable words and images, Cabell Phillips takes the reader from the crash of the stock market to the crash of bombs in Poland. The journey was a monumental one for Americans-a time of bitterness and despair, of failure and hunger and want, but also of rebirth.
