The images of the 1920s have been indelibly imprinted on the American imagination-from jazz, bootleggers, flappers, talkies, the Model T Ford, Babe Ruth, and Charles Lindbergh to the fight for women's right to vote, racial injustice, and the birth of organized crime.Nathan Miller has penned the ultimate introduction to the era. "Publishers Weekly" calls it "an excellent chronicle of that turbulent, troubled, and tempestuous decade," and Jonathan Yardley's "Washington Post" review proclaimed this "the" new classic history of the 1920s, replacing Frederick Lewis Allen's celebrated account.Using the life of F. Scott Fitzgerald as a backdrop, Miller describes the world of Calvin Coolidge, H. L. Mencken, Woodrow Wilson, and the Red Scare in extraordinarily accessible (and frequently witty) writing, "New World Coming" is destined to become the book we all turn to to recall one of the most beloved eras in American history.
