1920s America was at peace at home and abroad but issues facing the nation were highlighted by a series of trials including baseball's Black Sox, Al Capone, John T. Scopes, Sacco and Vanzetti, Leopold and Loeb, and the court martial of Billy Mitchell. Americans will find this book on trials of the “Roaring Twenties” provocative. Great Trials begins with an extensive introduction describing “the setting” of that tumultuous decade, and follows with an in-depth examination of 10 trials, touching on nearly every facet of American life. Each case is a fascinating story, and the fierce jousts in these courtrooms impart to the reader both how different things once were, and how much the nature of argumentative individuals has remained exactly the same.

The Twenties was the period which crystallised the vast social changes initiated in the first world war. It was probably the most significant decade in twentieth-century art and literature, and it was a time when America and Britain came very close together socially, culturally and in modes of entertainment. In this survey, the author records significant developments in aeronautics, motoring, radio, film, popular music, the press, sport and crime, and presents a vivid picture of celebrated 20s figures such as Clara Bow, Marlene Dietrich, Noel Coward and Al Capone. There are chapters covering Art Deco and Cubism, musical comedy, and 1920s fashion.
