9780814714133: America in the Twenties and Thirties: The Olympian Age of Franklin Delano Roosevelt

In this, the third volume of an interdisciplinary history of the United States since the Civil War, Sean Dennis Cashman provides a comprehensive review of politics and economics from the tawdry affluence of the 1920s throught the searing tragedy of the Great Depression to the achievements of the New Deal in providing millions with relief, job opportunities, and hope before America was poised for its ascent to globalism on the eve of World War II. The book concludes with an account of the sliding path to war as Europe and Asia became prey to the ambitions of Hitler and military opportunists in Japan.

The book also surveys the creative achievements of America's lost generation of artists, writers, and intellectuals; continuing innovations in transportation and communications wrought by automobiles and airplanes, radio and motion pictures; the experiences of black Americans, labor, and America's different classes and ethnic groups; and the tragicomedy of national prohibition.

The cast of characters includes FDR, the New Dealers, Eleanor Roosevelt, George W. Norris, William E. Borah, Huey Long, Henry Ford, Clarence Darrow, Ernest Hemingway, Scott Fitzgerald, W.E.B. DuBois, A. Philip Randolph, Orson Welles, Wendell Willkie, and the stars of radio and the silver screen.

The first book in this series, America in the Gilded Age, is now accounted a classic for historiographical synthesis and stylisic polish. America in the Age of the Titans, covering the Progressive Era and World War I, and America in the Twenties and Thirties reveal the author's unerring grasp of various primary and secondary sources and his emphasis upon structures, individuals, and anecdotes about them. The book is lavishly illustrated with various prints, photographs, and reproductions from the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

About the Author:

Sean Dennis Cashman is the author of various popular books on American history, most recently the third edition of his classic America in the Gilded Age, also available from NYU Press.

Review:

"Dworkin and Wachs have produced the best analysis we have of this crucial moment in the history of sports and gender. They combine real rigor with wit and perceptiveness in a book that will become a standard reference for years to come."
-Toby Miller, author of "SportSex"

"In this critical cultural expose, Dworkin and Wachs peel back the surface layers of the health and fitness craze and reveal a festering, discomfiting malaise about gender and sexuality. If the old feminist slogan, 'Our Bodies, Ourselves' helped women regain control over their bodies, Dworkin and Sachs suggest a new slogan, 'Our Bodies, Our Culture.' For only when we see how our bodies have been taken from us, repackaged and returned as deformed and puny, can we see that we've been sold dis-ease and discomfort in the guise of health and fitness."
-Michael Kimmel, author of "The Gendered Society" and editor, "Men and Masculinities"

"Body Panic is an excellent media analysis for those interested in gender, cultural, or media studies. . .a book detailing the complex interplay of media message about health in relation to gender, race, class, and sexuality is a welcome addition to the ongoing dialogue on health and fitness."
-"Sex Roles",

"A terrific critique of the ways that the media create and then sell the desire for perfect (but different) bodies to men and women. Dworkin and Wachs beautifully weave gender theory with empirical analyses of consumer culture for a very readable study."
-Judith Lorber, author of "Gendered Bodies: Feminist Perspectives" and "Breaking the Bowls: Degendering and Feminist Change"

"Body Panic is an interesting, careful, and timely book, and my guess is that it will be a valuable source for anyone interested in the sport-body-gender nexus for years to come."-Kevin Young, "American Journal of Sociology"
