Synopsis

Life & Times in 20th-Century America by Projects Inc Media

While newspapers, radio, television, and later the Internet reported astounding national and world events such as World War I and II, the moon landing, and the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, daily life continued apace for most Americans. How did the century's various discoveries, inventions, and events affect everyday Americans? Greenwood's five-volume Life & Times in 20th-Century America traces in detail the ups and downs of this political and social history, helping students to see how historical events impacted citizens' daily lives. Each volume includes chapters on the following topics: America during the period (overview and chronology) Family Life Social and Political Attitudes Education The Economy Work Religion Health, Science and Technology Leisure, Sports, and Entertainment Fashions and Fads. Readers can trace each topic from the beginning of the century to its end, and can compare and contrast how various people and events influenced the topic over time. Volume 1: Becoming a Modern Nation: 1900-1920 Volume 2: Boom Times, Hard Times: 1921-1940 Volume 3: Hot and Cold Wars: 1941-1960 Volume 4: Troubled Times at Home: 1961-1980 Volume 5: Promise and Change: 1981-2000
