On October 29, 1929, known as Black Tuesday, the stock market crashed, catapulting the US into the Great Depression. With updated narratives and testimonies, this book provides firsthand accounts - including memoirs, letters, speeches, and newspaper accounts - that illustrate how historical events appeared to those who lived through them.

From Library Journal:

Burg (coauthor, The World Almanac of the American Revolution, Pharos, 1992) competently delivers a narrative summary and chronology of major events in the United States and throughout the world during the Depression. He offers seven chapters, each covering one or more years; brief contemporary quotations from politicians, journalists, authors, and advertisements; and 80 black-and-white photographs. The appendixes contain a selection of primary sources, mainly New Deal statutes and other documents, and capsule biographies. The focus is somewhat different from that of existing reference series such as Britannica's "Annals of America," which is stronger on primary sources, and Time-Life's "This Fabulous Century," which offers better photographs. More recent competition comes from Victor Bondi's American Decades, 1930-1939 (Gale, 1995), which has a topical arrangement, a more attractive layout, and greater scope beyond politics but lacks the quotations. Given these choices, not to mention overlap with other types of reference books, this is an optional selection for school and college libraries.?Robert F. Nardini, North Chichester, N.H.

From Booklist:

Another volume in Facts On File's Eyewitness History series follows other similarly organized series entries, including ones on the Vietnam War, the women's suffrage movement, and the French Revolution. These Eyewitness books gather excerpts from a variety of primary sources--speeches, letters, narratives, newspaper accounts, and radio broadcast transcripts--to help readers get a feeling of how and why certain events took place and what it was like to live during each period. A wide range of contemporaneous events are included to provide a sense of historical context. A detailed chronology of each stage of the era is provided. (Pictures have been an especially valuable feature of the series, and 80 black-and-white photographs will be added to the finished work here.) Burg has written extensively on American history and gives here a sweeping view of the Great Depression, beginning with causal and catalytic events starting from the Treaty of Versailles and ending with effects and consequences that culminated with World War II.

On October 29, 1929, better known as Black Tuesday, the stock market crashed, abruptly ending a decade of prosperity and catapulting the United States into the Great Depression, arguably the worst economic crisis the country has ever experienced. During the years that followed, until U.S. entry into World War II in 1941, unemployment was at an all-time high, hundreds of banks foreclosed, and a sense of hopelessness pervaded the nation. It was only when America was drawn into the war that the United States finally emerged from the Great Depression. With updated narratives and testimonies, The Great Depression, Updated Edition provides hundreds of firsthand accounts of the period - including memoirs, letters, speeches, and newspaper accounts - that illustrate how historical events appeared to those who lived through them. Among the eyewitness testimonies included are those of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Huey Long, Lionel Robbins (who coined the term The Great Depression ), and hundreds more. In addition to the firsthand accounts, each chapter provides an introductory essay and a chronology of events.This updated edition includes 22 new photographs, a new appendix with 10 graphs, and a revised introduction, as well as relevant documents, capsule biographies of more than 200 key figures, and much more.
