Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An overview of American popular culture as it existed in the second decade of the 20th century. Separate chapters are devoted to advertising, architecture, fashion, food, leisure activities, literature, music, performing arts, travel, and visual arts. Two introductory chapters offer historical and contextual information. The survey nature of the material allows for little interpretative discussion and the text mainly confines itself to description. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
