Featuring eyewitness accounts, photographs, and biographies of the participants, this social, economic, and political history of the Jazz Age describes a society in deep conflict: workers and bosses, immigrants and "natives," men and women, and different racial and ethnic groups. Primary sources excerpted include memoirs, diaries, letters, newspapers, speeches, and advertisements. Chapters concentrate on topics like political turmoil, temperance, the 1921 depression, jazz, literature, the Scopes trial, international affairs, national pastimes, and prosperity. Appendixes feature additional documents, biographies, maps, graphs, and tables.
