1920: The Year That Made the Decade Roar

Eric Burns

The end of World War I had set polite society on its ear. Things were changing - and quickly. Burns exams the year 1920 to see what events began the building "roar" that describes the decade. Each chapter gets its own topic, like the election which was the first time that women voted as well as the first time the results were announced on the radio. Prohibition pulled federal agents from chasing the real bad guys, allowing Ponzi to pull off his scheme and criminals to become more organized. Corruption ran rampant in Washington while the northern migration of blacks gave birth to the Harlem Renaissance. A fascinating and exciting 12 months.
