Summary
Acclaimed author Eric Burns investigates the year of 1920, which was not only a crucial twelve-month period of its own, but one that foretold the future, foreshadowing the rest of the 20th century and the early years of the 21st, whether it was Sacco and Vanzetti or the stock market crash that brought this era to a close
Summary
Describes how 1920 was filled with massive political and social upheaval behind the flash and frivolity the decade has become known for, arguing that the twelve-month period foreshadowed the events of the twentieth and early twenty-first century
