  • 'Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the Great Depression' by Morris Dickstein

    'Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the Great Depression' by Morris Dickstein
    Morris Dickstein's "Dancing in the Dark" is not exactly the syncretic "Cultural History of the Great Depression" that its subtitle promises -- at best, the book treats inferentially the broad political and social trends of that desperate, crucial era. Let...
