Summary
With the analysis of the best scholars on this era, 29 essays demonstrate how academics then and now have addressed the political, economic, diplomatic, cultural, ethnic, and social history of the presidents of the Republican Era of 1921-1933 - Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover. * This is the first historiographical treatment of a long-neglected period, ranging from early treatments to the most recent scholarship * Features review essays on the era, including the legacy of progressivism in an age of "normalcy", the history of American foreign relations after World War I, and race relations in the 1920s, as well as coverage of the three presidential elections and a thorough treatment of the causes and consequences of the Great Depression * An introduction by the editor provides an overview of the issues, background and historical problems of the time, and the personalities at play. --Provided by publisher
