1927
By

Rating
A tumultuous stock market, a media obsessed with celebrity and scandal, a time new technologies were rocking society: the 1920s bear more than a little semblance to today, and 1927 is a snapshot of the period. Photographs and illustrations bring to life a year with astonishing parallels to the present. "[An] encyclopedic study with all the verve and excitement of a finely tuned novel.... An outstanding book." -- Library Journal
