Abstract:

This historical narrative describes the transformation in the American way of life which took place during the first fifty years of the 20th century, and its causes. Allen helps us to look at ourselves, graphically describing the various forces that have affected our country: the dazzling growth of mass production as seen in Henry Ford and the chain stores; the automobile revolution, the Great Depression and the coming of big government, and much more. Allen takes on all aspects of American life, from politics to finance, business to sports, literature and the arts, as well as a few informal aspects: blue jeans, trade conventions, and parkway systems.
