Summary
"Flamboyant, excessive, and abounding in changes, the 1920's fell between the two great wars of the 20th century. Characterized in the United States by the trends of Prohibition, bootleggers, the Harlem Renaissance, Art Deco design, and the Jazz Age, this period witnessed a shift in gender relations and moral values and spawned the first generation gap. While rural life became marked by a religious fundamentalism, urban life tended to an eager acceptance of modernity, a difference highlighted by the 1925 Scopes Trial in Dayton, Tennesse..."--p.[4] of cover
