How did the century's various discoveries, inventions, and events affect everyday Americans? Greenwood's five-volume Life & Times in 20th-Century America traces in detail the ups and downs of this political and social history, helping students to see how historical events impacted citizens' daily lives. Each volume includes chapters on the following topics: America during the period (overview and chronology) Family Life Social and Political Attitudes Education The Economy Work Religion Health, Science and Technology Leisure, Sports, and Entertainment Fashions and Fads.
