Book Review: Daily life in the USA, 1920-1940
The book named above explores events that shaped American history in the early 20th century. The author, David Kyvig, acknowledges that during the 1920s and ’30s, America experienced revolutionary changes that significantly influenced Americans’ lives. The modifications mentioned in this book include cultural upheavals, technological innovation, growth of urbanization, and the great economic depression. Kyvig uses this book to narrate how Americans led their daily lives in the early years of the 20th century, a time when home electricity, movies, radio, and automobiles became popular.
David Kyvig is currently a professor at the University of Northern Illinois. He has authored several books concerning American history, including Explicit and Authentic Acts that won the Bancroft Prize. In addition,Kyvig is a resident of Illinois living in DeKalb. The author presents a double-sided description of controversial issues such as how industrialization led to increased immigration into America and economic and racial discrimination during those years. The book demonstrates how the white working-class lived differently from others, which caused increased social tensions between the haves and the tohave not’s.
Kyvig’s book title, “Daily Life in the USA, 1920-1940: How Americans Lived Through the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression,” is appropriate because it gives readers a clear image of America between 1920 and 1940.By just reading the title, readers become aware that the book contains historical events that shaped America in the early years of the 20th century. Therefore, the title is satisfactory and requires no alterations.
