The American heritage history of the 20's & 30's by American Heritage (Periodical)( Book )

7 editions published between 1910 and 1970 in English and held by 1,847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... the story of the changes that came to America ... in the years between the two World Wars. At first, as the 1920's dawn, there is the ultraconservatism that rejects Wilson's League of Nations, amends the Constitution to prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages, suspects every immigrant of being a Red, and places TWK (meaning Trade With the Klan) stickers in merchant-members' shop windows. Then Henry Ford mass-produces flivvers that cost as little as $290, women get the vote, girls get a new concept of morality, and a freewheeling, flask-toting citizenry begins its surge to hedonism. They have plenty of examples to emulate: public officials get rich on purloined Navy oil while the President whom they betray dallies in the 'Little White House on H Street' or with his paramour in a little White House closet, the high jinks of high society and Hollywood are amply reported by a sensation-seeking press, the advertising fraternity urges everyone to keep up with the Joneses and endows [them] with everything. The great euphoria reaches its climax with the stock market crash ... Here you see what America was like when factories lay idle and old newspapers become 'Hoover blankets' for evicted families; when angry farmers gathered at foreclosure sales with pitchforks and shotguns to fight for their land; when the International Apple Shippers' Association offered apples on credit to the jobless to sell for five cents apiece on city streets; when Franklin Roosevelt said, 'This nation asks for action, and action now.' and started the kind of action that kept him in the White House for the rest of the Thirties and beyond. To be sure, there were many during those decades who did not drink bathtub gin and hanker for the sinful ways of the city, who were not wiped out by the economic downturn, did not hate 'that man in the White House.' These people are here too, some baffled, some belligerent, all caught in the crosscurrents of a nation in transition."--Jacket flaps

Collectivization of agriculture in Eastern Europe by Enno E Kraehe( Book )

4 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collectivization of agriculture is an essential feature of the Communist program for the satellite countries of Eastern Europe. It is a means of extending state control of agriculture as well as the basis for developing large-scale industrial and military power. Irwin T. Sanders has edited this excellent group of papers by specialists on Eastern Europe and American rural social scientists, which collectively serve as an analysis of efforts to regiment the East European peasant. To those for whom the terms "collective farm" and "collectivization" have little meaning, this book will provide an actual picture of Communist effort to organize millions of peasants into a standard pattern of production and control. Such regimentation, these writers show, has led to less efficient agriculture from the standpoint of total production although it facilitates the delivery of produce to state economic enterprises
ROARING TWENTIES by Edmund O Stillman( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

No decade in American history has roared as loudly as the 1920s. For two centuries, the United States had lived in happy isolation from international issues. Then it was drawn into World War I. Although America was still fundamentally a provincial society, by the end of the war and the opening of the new decade, most Americans understood that a new era lay before the country. Despite Prohibition, it was an intoxicating decade, populated with characters as varied as Clarence Darrow, Henry Ford, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Charles Lindbergh, Woodrow Wilson - and flappers. It was a time when ideas about love, public decorum, dress, and speech were changing. It was a time of cultivation of the new, shocking, and sometimes, according to the standards of the previous decade, vulgar: the stocking rolled below the knee, four-letter words in the mouths of debutantes, and speakeasies. All of these details, along with the economic collapse that ended the decade and sparked the Great Depression, are captured in this vivid chronicle by noted historian Edmund O. Stillman
GREAT DEPRESSION by Edmund O Stillman( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The event that defined the 1930s in the United States came before it started. On October 29, "Black Tuesday," stock-market investors lost more than $30 billion in the Great Crash. The ten-year Great Depression that followed was not the product of a single day or week. Nonetheless, it came as a shock to the American people and to the man they looked to for relief: President Herbert Hoover.Soon, as banks failed, mortgages were foreclosed, and unemployment soared, bread lines formed throughout the country in grim testimony to the state of the economy. The policies of Hoover and then Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal started a long road to relief, recovery, and reform.Here, from the respected historian Edmund O. Stillman, are the stories of The Great Depression, the 1930s, and an American people defined by their resilience in the face of debilitating despair
