This concise history of the 1920's in America was very informative. The author touches on many aspects of life at that time: political (especially Presidential politics), economic, fashion trends and so on. Covered in detail is something we all learned about in school: the Teapot Dome Scandal. I feel I know much more now about that era than what movies and TV shows have shown.

The book was written in 1931, and, unfortunately, this edition was printed at that time and uses the tiny font that may make reading uncomfortable for many readers.
