KIRKUS REVIEW

In attempting to cover almost every important aspect of U.S. life in that most momentous period of 1929 to 1939, Mr. Hoyt has managed to provide something for everybody but not a great deal for anybody. With 20 chapters covering 18 discrete subjects, and in less than 400 pages, the sauce is likely to be pretty thin. Obviously this is not for even the casual student of recent history, but to the nostalgic it will rekindle memories, and for the young it may serve as a goal to more serious study.
