This illustrated encyclopedia offers in-depth coverage on one of the most fascinating and widely-studied periods in American history. Extending from the end of World War I in 1918 to the great Wall Street crash in 1929, the Jazz Age was a time of frenetic energy and unprecedented historical developments, ranging from the League of Nations, woman suffrage, Prohibition, the Red Scare, the Ku Klux Klan, the Lindberg flight, and the Scopes trial to the rise of organized crime, motion pictures, and celebrity culture. Encyclopedia of the Jazz Age provides detailed information on the politics, economics, society, and culture of the era in a fast-paced narrative that will appeal to readers from senior high school through undergraduate level. Entries cover themes, personalities, institutions, ideas, events, trends, and more, and special features such as sidebars and cultural landmarks help bring the era vividly to life.
