The presidential election of 1920 was one of the most dramatic ever. For the only time in the nation's history, six once-and-future presidents hoped to end up in the White House. As people chose between the Wilsonian legacy of the League of Nations and Harding's more isolationist stand, this election would shape America's course in the twentieth century like no other. It was an election that saw unprecedented levels of publicity--the Republicans outspent the Democrats by 4 to 1--and it was the first to garner extensive newspaper and newsreel coverage. It was also the first election in which women could vote. Meanwhile, the 1920 census showed that America had become an urban nation--automobiles, mass production, chain stores, and easy credit were transforming the economy and American was limbering up for the roaring '20s, one of the most spectacular decades of its history. Pietrusza's riveting new work presents a dazzling panorama of presidential personalities, ambitions, plots, and counterplots--a picture of modern America at the crossroads.
