Summary
This Is Who We Were: In The 1920s is an offspring of our 13-volume Working Americans series. This new title is devoted to one decade -- the 1920s. It represents all classes, dozens of occupations, and all regions of the country. This comprehensive look at the decade when consumerism, new freedoms for women, new inventions, and shifting social ethics were introduced presents American history through the eyes and ears of everyday Americans, not the words of historians or politicians. This Is Who We Were: In The 1920s presents 28 profiles of individuals and families -- their life at home, on the job, and in their neighborhood -- with lots of photos and historical images of the time. These stories are told through the eyes and ears of everyday Americans, some struggling and some successful, but all authentic. Together, the profiles, with the other sections of the book, present a complete picture of what it was like to live in America in the 1920s, from the doctor who started an uproar by distributing birth control literature to his patients, to the inventor of the zipper, to the Kansas woman who advocated for the censorship of silent films, and many more pivotal events that made the 1920s unique and groundbreaking. - Publisher
