Product Overview

This book provides an insightful overview of the major cultural forms of 1930s America: literature and drama, music and radio, film and photography, art and design, and a chapter on the role of the federal government in the development of the arts. The intellectual context of 1930s American culture is a strong feature, whilst case studies of influential texts and practitioners of the decade -- from "War of the Worlds" to "The Grapes of Wrath" and from Edward Hopper to the Rockefeller Centre -- help to explain the cultural impulses of radicalism, nationalism and escapism that characterize the United States in the 1930s.

Key Features:

* 3 case studies per chapter featuring key texts, genres, writers and artists

* Chronology of 1930s American Culture

* Bibliographies for each chapter
