Summary
"The 1920s and 1930s saw dramatic changes in the American population, as increasing urbanization, innovations in technology, cultural upheaval, and economic disaster exerted major influences on the daily lives of ordinary people. Explore how everyday living changed during these years when use of automobiles and home electrification first became commonplace, when radio emerged, and when cinema, with the addition of sound, became broadly popular. Find out how work life, domestic life, and leisure-time activities were affected by these factors as well as by the politics of the time. Details of matters such as the creation of the pickup truck, the development of radio programming, and the first mass use of cosmetics provide an enjoyable read that brings the era of "The Roaring Twenties" and "The Great Depression" clearly into focus."--BOOK JACKET
