Are We A Nation?: The Emergence of Modern America, 1896–1929

Saturday, October 12, 2013 - 2:00pm
The era of Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford laid the foundations for the America of bigger government, citizen-consumers, ethnic diversity, global leadership, and popular culture fueled by celebrity, advertising and mass communication.  At the same time, powerful old ideas about national identity, public behavior and gender, and potent forces of religious fundamentalism, isolationism and social conservatism resisted change and battled mightily to slow its momentum.
