America was booming during the second decade of the century, and these volumes cover it all. Entries discuss America's love affair with the automobile, a longer day for urban dwellers made possible by electricity, changes in jobs and earnings due to the millions of immigrants who entered the country at the beginning of the decade, a rise in divorce, and, of course, the Great World War. Every entry focuses on a topic or person during the 1910s that made the decade unique. Salem's Decades<\I> series has been acclaimed as effective teaching aids that enable students to better understand significant aspects of each decade's history. Written to be understood by high school students and college undergraduates, these volumes offer a clear and innovative approach to North America that can also be used by advanced students and scholars.<\P>
