The Urban Nation 1920-1960
The Urban Nation 1920-1960 by George E Mowry
The United states in 1920 was essentially a small-government, small-town agricultural nation. Today, after the Depression, the Second World War, the Cold War, and the more subtle changes wrought by urbanization and a mass-production economy, our nineteenth-century rural values have been largely displaced, and we live in a society and a world that have been drastically transformed. In putting Americas recent history into perspective and suggesting fresh interpretations, Goerge E Mowry has written an important and exciting book.
