About

Overview

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.
