This book captures the 1920s beautifully; from silent films to the Depression, from the Jazz Age to economic chaos. There are over 300 black-and-white photos that show it all and explain things in English, German and French.

The section, The Haves and the Have Nots is a particularly poignant group of photos. We tend to see films with famous actors in their later years; this book offers early views of Jimmy Cagney, Noel Coward, Joan Crawford and Marlene Dietrich.

This is an engaging book that brings to the reader the grotesque and gorgeous era in Americas history. The entire series is worthwhile but this book really gives a broad view of an exciting and frightening age.
