Race relations in the 1920s ranged from an epidemic of lynchings of African Americans, race riots, and the execution of Italian immigrants Sacco and Vanzetti to citizenship for American Indians but not for Mexican immigrants. As the 1930s unfolded, there was more discrimination of Latinos and a legal lynching in the Scottsboro Boys trial, and German Jewish children were refused refuge from Hitler's Germany. This volume is THE content-rich source in a desirable decade-by-decade organization to help students and general readers understand the crucial race relations of the fascinating Jazz Age and Great Depression era. Race Relations in the United States, 1920-1940 provides comprehensive reference coverage of the key events, influential voices, race relations by group, legislation, media influences, cultural output, and theories of inter-group interactions.

The volume covers two decades with a standard format coverage per decade, including Timeline, Overview, Key Events, Voices of the Decade, Race Relations by Group, Law and Government, Media and Mass Communications, Cultural Scene, Influential Theories and Views of Race Relations, Resource Guide. This format allows comparison of topics through the decades. The bulk of the coverage is topical essays, written in a clear, encyclopedic style. Historical photos, a selected bibliography, and index complement the text.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Essential for both students and teachers, these volumes offer a concise view of twentieth-century American history through the topic of race relations....Each decade starts with a brief timeline and is followed by a fairly in-depth, encyclopedic overview of key events....The book goes beyond the African-American experience, and, in fact, much of its focus is on the way the United States closed its borders to immigrants during this period (Reviewed with Race Relations in the United States, 1960-1980)." - MultiCultural Review
