Présentation de l'éditeur
This textured look at 1930s American culture provides a cost comparison of common goods and services, a timeline of important events, notes arranged by chapter, an extensive bibliography for further reading, and a subject index. Most historical studies bury us in wars and politics, paying scant attention to the everyday effects of pop culture. Welcome to America's other historyÑthe arts, activities, common items, and popular opinions that profoundly impacted our national way of life. The twelve narrative chapters in this volume provide a textured look at everyday life, youth, and the many different sides of American culture during the 1930s. Additional resources include a cost comparison of common goods and services, a timeline of important events, notes arranged by chapter, an extensive bibliography for further reading, and a subject index. The dark cloud of the Depression shadowed most Americans' lives during the 1930s. Books, movies, songs, and stories of the 1930s gave Americans something to hope for by depicting a world of luxury and money. Major figures of the age included Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Irving Berlin, Amelia Earhart, Duke Ellington, the Marx Brothers, Margaret Mitchell, Cole Porter, Joe Louis, Babe Ruth, Shirley Temple, and Frank Lloyd Wright. Innovations in technology and travel hinted at a Utopian society just off the horizon, group sports and activities gave the unemployed masses ways to spend their days, and a powerful new demographicÑthe American teenagerÑsuddenly found itself courted by advertisers and entertainers.

This book is a very well rounded glimpse into life in that era. My parents were both born in that era, so even they could not give me the little details of life at this time that this book can because they were too young to remember much. We all know from our history classes what the political climate was at that time; or the movies and movie stars that were popular, which are also touched upon. But it's interesting that the book also gives a view of advertising, teenagers, hobbies, food, architecture and other little "behind the scenes" things. I would recommend this to anyone interested in this era.
Non-profound but interest-holding

This is a volume in the series "American Popular Culture Through History." It discusses some dozen topics as reflected by the 1930s, such as Adverising, Fashion, Food and Drink, etc. There is nothing about history except as it relates to the topics discussed. Having been a farm boy in that decade not much of what the authors talk about resonated especially with me, though I do not dispute any of the conclusions which the authors come to. It is a pleasant book but not very erudite, though obviously there was a lot of research done: the 24 page bibliography demonstates that.
