Prohibition. Al Capone. The President Harding scandals. The revolution of manners and morals. Black Tuesday. These are only an inkling of the events and figures characterizing the wild, tumultuous era that was the Roaring Twenties. Originally published in 1931, Only Yesterday traces the rise of post-World War I prosperity up to the Wall Street crash of 1929 against a colorful backdrop of flappers, speakeasies, the first radio, and the scandalous rise of skirt hemlines. Hailed as an instant classic, this is Frederick Lewis Allen's vivid and definitive account of one of the twentieth century's most fascinating decades, chronicling a time of both joy and terror-when dizzying highs were quickly succeeded by heartbreaking lows.… (lisätietoja)

Reminded me of why I was a history major in the first place. ( )

This is, as the title suggests, the history of the 1920s, chiefly in the USA. My first surprise with the book was that it wasn’t written recently but in 1930 and first published in 1931. This fact cannot be spotted immediately, thus it is a rare kind of the historical text that remains valid.
It is true that the book omits or pays a little attention to some themes, which other more modern books on the period describe, most importantly life of African-Americans and jazz music. At the same time it illuminates in detail such advances as a sexual revolution (not in the 60s), appearance of tabloids and sensational press – I’ve learnt a new word – ballyhoo from it :)
It is astounding how the life drastically changed during the roaring 20s – out of my four decades on this Earth I cannot select one that shifted the world so drastically. Despite the fall of the USSR, rise of the internet and election of non-white as a president of the USA.
It is interesting how open the author speaks about prohibition and Al Capone, I thought that a lot of details were open to general public much later. Other flashlights: the Red Scare of 1920, Lindbergh’s flight, Ford model A, boom and crash of the stock market, Harding and corruption, Wilson and the world peace.
Recommended as a forgotten jewel of the early 1930s to anyone who has the basic knowledge of the period

Many books have been written about the 1920s, but this is the only one I've read that was written in the 1930s. While there is none of the objectivity that comes with time, Allen brings an immediacy and familiarity that he expects his reader to share. Some of it translates to the 21st century, and some does not, but it is a fascinating look at a culture examining itself. ( )

This is an approachable, fascinating overview of the 1920s, covering everything from popular culture to hemlines to the Florida land boom to the stock market crash. The original edition was published in 1931 (and is available as a free legal download through the New York Public Library at archive.org). ( )

When Frederick Lewis Allen's fascinating social history of America in the 1920's was first published in 1931, the twenties were inded Only Yesterday. (Foreword by Roy R. Neuberger, June 1997)
If time were suddenly to turn back to the earliest days of the Postwar Decade, and you were to look about you, what would seem strange to you? since 1919 the circumstances of American life have been transformed--yes, but exactly how?

Something spiritual had gone out of the churches--a sense of certainty that theirs was the way to salvation. Religion was furiously discussed [...] yet all this discussion was itself a sign that for millions of people religion had become a debatable subject instead of being accepted without question among the traditions of the community. (Chap. 8 [4])
If church attendance declined, it was perhaps because, as Walter Lippman put it, people were not so certain that they were going to meet God when they went to church. If the minister's prestige declined, it was in many cases because he had lost his one-time conviction that he had a definite and authoritative mission. The Reverend Charles Stelzle, a shrewd observer of religious conditions, spoke bluntly in an article in the World's Work: the church, he said, was declining largely because "those who are identified with it do not actually believe in it." Mr. Stelzle told of asking groups of Protestant ministers what there was in their church programs which would prompt them, if they were outsiders, to say, "That is great; that is worth lining up for," and of receiving in no case an immediate answer which satisfied even the answerer himself. In the congregations, and especially among the younger men and women, there was an undeniable weakening of loyalty to the church and an undeniable vagueness as to what it had to offer them [...]. (Chap. 8 [4])
Of all the sciences it was the youngest and least scientific which most captivated the general public and had the most disintegrating effect upon religious faith. Psychology was king. Freud, Adler, Jung, and Watson has their tens of thousands of votaries; intelligence-testers invaded the schools in quest of I.Q.s; psychiatrists were installed in business houses to hire and fire employees and determine advertising policies; an one had only to read the newspapers to be told with complete assurance that psychology held the key to the problems of waywardness, divorce, and crime. (Chap. 8 [4])
Those who believed in the letter of the Bible and refused to accept any teaching, even of science, which seemed to conflict with it, bean in 1921 to call themselves Fundamentalists. The Modernists (or Liberals), on the othe hand, tried to reconcile their beliefs with scientific thought: to throw overboard what was out of date, to retain what was essential and intellectually respectable, and generally to mediate between Christianity and the skeptical spirit of the age. (Chap. 8 [4])
The Modernists had the Zeitgeist on their side, but they were not united. Their interpretations of God -- as the first cause, as absolute energy, as idealized reality, as a righteous will working in creation, as the ideal and goal toward which all that is highest and best is moving -- were confusingly various and ambiguous. Some of these interpretations offered little to satisfy the worshiper; one New England clergyman said that when he thought of God he thought of "a sort of oblong blur." And the Modernists threw overboard so many doctrines in which the bulk of American Protestants had grown up believing (such as the Virgin birth, the resurrection of the body, and the Atonement) that they seemed to many to have no religious cargo left except a nebulous faith, a general benevolence, and a disposition to assure everyone that he was really as just as religion as they. Gone for them, as Walter Lippman said, was "that deep, compulsive, organic faith in an external fact which is the essence of religion for all but that very small minority who can live within themselves in mystical communion or by the power of their understanding." (Chap. 8 [4])
