The 1920s, familiarly known as the "Jazz Age," was a decade of newfound personal freedoms, economic prosperity, artistic license, rampant consumerism, and political isolationism. The Roaring Twenties probes deeply into this time period to make it vivid and immediate for readers. Featuring narrative text, eyewitness accounts, photographs, and biographies of the participants, The Roaring Twenties is an extensive political, economic, and social history. The volume describes a society in deep conflict: workers and owners, immigrants and "natives," men and women, and different racial and ethnic groups. Author Tom Streissguth also examines the segment of the American population who looked back to a better past, advocating a return to traditional values, segregation of the races, law and order, social uniformity, and temperance.
