Review

"[o]ffers a detailed and highly readable exposition of the decade's most prominent crazes and phenomena. They are interested on their own terms, and, perhaps even more importantly, well deserve to be studied closely and reflex to the Depression. Americans gladly turned to, among other things, papers, cartoons, radio, and movies in search of entertainment, minutes or hours of laughter, and optimism in times....Readers taking up this book can (re)discover these and many more interpretations and presentations of popular culture in the 1930s. If it may be put in the style of advertisers: those interested in the Depression years and populuar culture are well advised not "to think about it tomorrow but to "just do it.""-H-Net Reviews

"[s]tudents will undoubtedly find this history of popular culture to their liking....schools whose history teachers encourage library use and research will benefit from its addition to the collection. Recommended."-Library Media Connection

"[I]ncludes a short time line and an eye-opening four page summary noting the cost of various products, along with a formula to translate these costs into current economic values....will provide students with a head start for further research."-School Library Journal

By Schmerguls VINE VOICE on June 29, 2008
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a volume in the series "American Popular Culture Through History." It discusses some dozen topics as reflected by the 1930s, such as Adverising, Fashion, Food and Drink, etc. There is nothing about history except as it relates to the topics discussed. Having been a farm boy in that decade not much of what the authors talk about resonated especially with me, though I do not dispute any of the conclusions which the authors come to. It is a pleasant book but not very erudite, though obviously there was a lot of research done: the 24 page bibliography demonstates that.

This book is a very well rounded glimpse into life in that era. My parents were both born in that era, so even they could not give me the little details of life at this time that this book can because they were too young to remember much. We all know from our history classes what the political climate was at that time; or the movies and movie stars that were popular, which are also touched upon. But it's interesting that the book also gives a view of advertising, teenagers, hobbies, food, architecture and other little "behind the scenes" things. I would recommend this to anyone interested in this era.
