Summary and Info
In the decade following the end of World War I, the United States rose to its current seat as the leading world superpower matched by an emerging cultural dominance that would come to characterize the second half of the twentieth century. American Culture in the 1920s is an engaging account of the major cultural and intellectual trends that were pivotal to the decade's characterization as "the jazz age." Avoiding superficial representations of the era as the "roaring twenties" plagued by a "lost generation," the volume provides a full portrait that includes chapters on literature, music and performance, film and radio, visual art and design, and the unprecedented rise of leisure and consumption.
