A study culled from secondary sources of radio, film, print, modern art, and the World's Fair. Rockefeller's act of vandalism is treated by Marquis as if it was a mild slap on the wrist of Rivera, a naughty boy who deserved it anyway. Marquis aims at a sort of popular narrative history Ã¡ la Frederick Lewis Allen or Gilbert Seldes. Unfortunately, the book often reads like an imperfectly arranged slide lecture, with inapposite images juxtaposed: Edward Hopper, Thomas Wolfe, Martha Graham, and George Gershwin are mentioned in the same breath. An obtuse attempt at cultural history that crashes as surely as the market did in '29.

Marquis describes developments in these areas, as well as detailing the 1939 New York World's Fair, in this well-written, enjoyable book. The interaction of mass and elite culture is investigated, as are the cultural effects of the Depression and the European unrest in the course of the decade. Unfortunately, Marquis covers little new ground, fails to tie her discussions together, and uses many secondary sources. Illustrated to convey the style and sensibility of the 1930s, this volume illustrates the events and personalities of the 1930s and the birth of American mass culture.
