Sometimes referred to as the Jazz Age or the Roaring Twenties, the period from 1920 to 1929 witnessed such momentous events as the crash of the stock market, Prohibition, the Harlem Renaissance, the Scopes "Monkey Trial," and the first feature-length motion picture with a soundtrack.

Day by Day: The Twenties is a comprehensive two-volume set presenting a complete, accessible chronology of this pivotal decade. This unique new title documents the major events of the period as they unfolded each day, including the defining social, economic, political, and cultural issues of the time. Comprehensive daily coverage is divided into 10 sections: World Affairs; Europe; Africa and the Middle East; The Americas; Asia and the Pacific; U.S. Politics and Social Issues; U.S. Foreign Policy and Defense; U.S. Economy and Environment; Science, Technology, and Nature; and Culture, Leisure, and Lifestyle.


Black-and-white illustrations. Index. In two volumes.
