Buchbeschreibung Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1997. Originalbroschur. Buchzustand: Gut. X, 166 S. Aus der Bibliothek des Literaturwissenschaftlers Eberhard Lämmert. Einband leicht berieben. - The twentieth century swept up millions of ordinary people in the drama of history. Private lives collided with public events, and it is the records of this intersection—family scrapbooks and photo albums—that have inspired this powerful collection. Imagining the Twentieth Century pairs stirring black-and-white photographs with thoughtful essays that profile the changes of the past century: in politics and technology but also in childhood and old age, in leisure and work, and in the environment and the movies. Evolving out of a collaboration among seventeen historians at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, this book explores ordinary moments, political events, and cultural fashions around the world, often in very personal terms.
