Summary

Each decade in 20th-century America was defined by the people, events, and trends that combined to infuse it with its own distinct personality. In the 1920s there were flappers and the Charleston, in the 1950s bobby-soxers and hula hoops, in the 1970s hippies and disco, and in the 1990s Lilith Fair and the World Wide Web. Studying these decades one by one gives readers a true feel for the character and events of the time. Decades of American History, an exciting set, encourages young readers to do just that, exploring each decade of the 20th century in all its colorful history.

In addition to coverage of each presidential administration, important events, and historical trends, these compelling books include information on what was happening in the arts, sciences, popular culture, fashion, and music. Each inviting and user-friendly volume includes 100 or more photographs, box features, pull-out quotations and facts in the margin, a glossary, a further reading list, and an index. Designed to be accessible to young readers, these volumes provide a fascinating history of 20th-century America.
