Rich in nostalgia, THE THIRTIES provides a searching and well-balanced work of social history. Fashion went romantic; glamour became the key word, students rebelled, Communist poets fought in Spain, the era of "Swing", greyhound racing, the yo-yo and the first blockbusting best-sellers, Anthony Adverse and Gone With The Wind. It's all here, brilliantly illustrated with contemporary photographs and paintings.
