This book's narrative inevitably has to move beyond the scope of one year, to show the impact of that year's events on the decade which followed. Some of the events, such as the Ponzi Scheme, still exist today. The author makes one glaring error--he asserts that the League of Nations never existed. It was a toothless wonder without the United States, and it withered away long before it could have prevented World War II, but it most certainly existed.
Engrossing and fun to read, about a storied era which changed so many of the ideals and values which had governed American life up to that point.
