Publishers Description The "Roaring Twenties Reference Library" chronicles and illustrates a time of great social change in everything from fashion to music to politics.
The "Almanac and Primary Sources" volume explores this decade from many aspects. Defining books such as "The New Negro" by Alain Locke and "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald are shown to both reflect and create the temper of the times. Crime, prohibition, flappers, Black Thursday, radio, the automobile and jazz are just a few of the subjects examined.
The "Biographies" volume focuses on the key figures, including minorities and women. People such as Zora Neale Hurston, Rudolph Valentino, Al Capone, Bessie Smith, Babe Ruth, Duke Ellington, Henry Ford and Langston Hughes are profiled, with special emphasis on their contributions to the 1920s. Includes a separately published comprehensive index.
