Product Description & Reviews
Take an in-depth look at the decade that defined a generation with THE GREAT DEPRESSION, a four-part series from HISTORY.In the first years of the Great Depression, banks and businesses failed in record numbers as America struggled to come to grips with the disaster. Examine the changes that swept the shaken nation, from the landslide victory of FDR in 1932, to the California migrations of Dust Bowl farmers, in ''The Great Shake-Up.'' Faced with hard times, Americans sought release wherever they could find it, from marathon dancing to going to the movies. ''Face the Music'' uses extensive film clips and photos to show how the media came of age to become an integral part of daily life. As the Depression lingered and the New Deal failed to live up to people's expectations, some Americans fought back against a system they felt had betrayed them. In ''Striking Back,'' rare footage and revealing interviews relive the desperate acts of people who had been pushed too far by the crisis. Finally, ''Desperate Measures'' shows how the approach of World War II did what all the protests and recovery programs failed to do - end the Great Depression.
