Frederick Lewis Allen begins this short book (346 pages) where he left off in his last book (Only Yesterday)--with the stock market crash of 1929--and ends it with the advent of World War II in 1939. Allen skillfully weaves the minor events of this decade (the fads, books, crimes, machines, gadgets, personalities, movies, fashions, etc.) together with the major events (the stock market crash, the Great Depression, and the New Deal) in a delightfully entertaining, informative fashion.

One of the most interesting aspects of this book is the day-to-day details in provides of life in the 1930s, not only the impact of the Great Depression, but tidbits about fashion, culture, etc.
