Bringing the Jazz Age to life through the clothes of the flappers and ""Thoroughly Modern Millies,"" ""Fashions of a Decade: The 1920s"" revisits an important part of social and cultural history. As the fabric of society changed, fashion took on a life of its own - exploding with new colors and trends - alongside the innovative rhythms and styles of jazz music. It was a period of youthful escapism, a reaction to the stern clothes and strict behavior that was expected during the Victorian Age, and this revised, full-color volume captures the essence of that social change.

The rating I placed on the book is more for the decade's fashion than for the actual book.

I am learing about this at school so I wanted to see this book but I have to put a hold in this book and wait.

Although this is supposed to be a book for children, it is good for adults as general resource, with some detail, that will help you start a more in-depth research. My problem with the author was a comment--actually two--especially since the book is meant for children. The first: "The Nazi were one of several extremist-right-wing German nationalist groups, etc." Wow, that was some news: socialists are now "right-wing"... And according to her the KKK was founded in 1915. Actually the KKK was created by Confederates in the 1860's. She should have kept her political mouth shut and write only about fashion, a subject she seems to know enough.
