BOOK EXCERPT:

Today when most Americans think of the Great Depression, they imagine desperate men standing in bread lines, bootleggers hustling illegal booze to secrecy-shrouded speakeasies, FDR smiling, or Judy Garland skipping along the yellow brick road. Hard times have become an abstraction; but this was the era when the federal government became a major player in the national economy and Americans bestowed the responsibility for maintaining full employment and stable prices on Congress and the White House, making the Depression years a major watershed in U.S. history. In more than 500 essays, this ready reference brings those hard times to life, covering diplomacy, popular culture, intellectual life, economic problems, public policy issues, and prominent individuals of the era.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The 1970s were difficult years for the United States, a time when long-held convictions were challenged and the nation experienced a collective identity crisis. Women and minorities called into question the belief that freedom and equality are the birthright of all Americans. Watergate and related scandals of the Nixon administration damaged the country's faith in politicians and the political system. The Arab oil boycott, the energy crisis, the environmental movement, and years of stagflation raised doubts about the future of the nation's economy, and in the jungles of Vietnam, many Americans began to doubt their ability to protect the world from Communism. This book includes entries on the prominent people, significant events, issues and controversies, and the culture of the decade.
