A 56-pages easy-to-use guide to the Roaring Twenties

The Roaring Twenties is a fascinating time where so many things we now take for granted first came into existence. It was both a time of change for so many people (women, but also minorities, especially African Americans) and of ideas still stubbornly clinging to the past (the Scope Trial, for example, and to some extent, Prohibition itself). These contradictions are the heart of this era.

For those of you who are fascinated with the 1920s as much as I am, I’ve written a short compendium of the American Roaring Twenties, an easy-to-use guide, arranged alphabetically, that covers all the main aspects of that time.
