Summary

"The years between WWI and the great stock market crash marked the arrival of the United States as a world military, business, scientific, and cultural leader. Substantial biographical accounts of 60 Americans who influenced or represented their times are combined with portraits, photographs, and rare primary documents written by or relating to the subject. These American luminaries - the writers, musicians, athletes, scientists, political and social leaders, movie stars, and criminals - include: Edwin Armstrong, Al Capone, Carrie Chapman Catt, Charlie Chaplin, Eugene V. Debs, Duke Ellington, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Henry Ford, Emma Goldman, Langston Hughes, Knute Rockne, Babe Ruth, Margaret Sanger, and Woodrow Wilson.".

"Each entry offers a comprehensive account of the person's life and work, first-hand accounts of what they thought, and what was thought about them. This all-in-one biographical resource is perfect for students and anyone interested in this pivotal era in American history. Included are sources for further reading and an analytical index."--BOOK JACKET.
