As such, accounts of the Versailles treaty, the founding of the League of Nations, the red scare, the Palmer raids, the 1921 depression, the Teapot Dome scandal, Prohibition, the automobile age, the Florida land craze, the great bull market and stock market crash of 1929 are mingled with a record of fads and fashions such as Mah Jong, prize fights, jazz, ballyhoo, crossword puzzles, and radio.
