As the new century dawns, curricular and popular interest is increasingly focused on understanding the historical events and forces that have driven the vast changes in the twentieth century. And the period between the two world wars, one replete with artistic inspiration, economic enterprise, intellectual commentary and analysis, and political wrangling, witnessed much of this change.
Focusing primarily on the United States and Western Europe, Encyclopedia of the Interwar Years is an interdisciplinary reference to the ideas, people, places, and events -- military, political, and cultural -- of the period between the two wars. It is a consistent and comprehensive guide for any reader interested in understanding the dynamics and development of this period.
Among the topics covered are:
-- Biographies, including political leaders, social workers, actors, composers, athletes, writers, criminals, film directors, artists, industrialists, and playwrights
-- Movements, including Art Deco, the Bloomsbury Group, Colonialism, Fascism, The Lost Generation, Moral Re-Armament, Nazism, Protectionism, and Surrealism
-- Legislation and Court Cases, including the Adjusted Compensation Act of 1924, the Child Labor Act, the Federal Securities Act, the Government of India Act, the Immigration Act of 1924, and the Scopes Monkey Trial
