The Roaring Twenties was a golden age of economic prosperity and liberal social change. Innovations in numerous industries revived a sluggish post-World War I economy, and mass production methods allowed for the standardized, rapid production of various goods, the most notable of which was the automobile. The roar of thousands of newly manufactured vehicles filled the city streets, and the ripple effect of the industry spawned a myriad of ancillary industries, such as car dealerships and mechanic shops. Innovations in the entertainment industry heralded the Golden Age of Radio and resulted in the replacement of vaudeville with cinema as “talkies” replaced silent films and movies came alive with color. The most iconic image of the era was the flapper—a thoroughly modern, young woman, unafraid to flout the social norms of her parents’ generation and break with long-standing traditions. She typified the sexually expressive, modern, young, and fun woman who had gained the right to vote, and who was ready to take her rightful place in both the workforce and in the speakeasies that cropped up in the wake of Prohibition.
✓ The Booming Economy of the 1920s
✓ Babe Ruth, Jazz, Art Deco, and the Flapper
✓ Women’s Rights, Civil Rights, and Gay Rights
✓ Politics and All That Jazz
✓ The Wall Street Crash of 1929
And much more!
Along with the social changes for women, African-American cultural and artistic expressions ruled the day as jazz music emanated from the speakeasies and the radio. African-American literature rose to prominence, and all-black casts were featured in the popular theatrical productions. It was an era of progressive change fueled by a sustained economic prosperity that seemed to have no end. It did come to an abrupt end, though, with the Wall Street Crash of 1929. The music stopped, the flapper faded, and the roar of prosperity was silenced. The impact of that golden era, however, still reverberates throughout the modern day. This book tells the compelling story of this raucous period in history in succinct, yet informative detail that is both educational and entertaining.

This edited volume explores the philosophical implications of quantum mechanics. It features papers from venues of the International Ontology Congress (IOC) up to 2016. IOC is a worldwide platform for dialogue and reflection on the interactions between science and philosophy.
The collection features philosophers as well as physicists, including David Albert, Harvey Brown, Jeffrey Bub, Otávio Bueno, James Cushing, Steven French, Victor Gomez-Pin, Carl Hoefer, Simon Kochen, Peter Lewis, Tim Maudlin, Peter Mittlestatedt, Roland Omnès, Juha Saatsi, Albert Solé, David Wallace, and Anton Zeilinger.
Since the early days of quantum mechanics, philosophers have studied the subject with growing technical skill and fruitfulness. Their efforts have unveiled intellectual bridges between physics and philosophy. These connections have helped fuel the contemporary debate about the scope and limits of realism and understanding in the interpretation of physical theories and scientific theories in general. The philosophical analysis of quantum mechanics is now one of the most sophisticated and productive areas in contemporary philosophy, as the papers in this collection illustrate.

Dazzling, clamorous and exotic, the circus is a theatre of the improbable and impossible. From the days of travelling troupes of acrobats and jugglers to the grand spectacle of the Cirque du Soleil, the circus has exerted an indelible fascination. Of all our myths of reinvention, rebirth, second acts and new identities, running away to join the circus has a special allure. In this book Linda Simon asks why we long to soar on the flying trapeze; to ride bareback on a spangled horse; to parade through city streets in costumes of glitter and gold. Why have artists and writers repeatedly or obsessively taken the circus as their subject? What does the circus offer us that we think we so desperately need?
The Greatest Shows on Earth takes us from eighteenth-century hippodromes in Britain to intimate one-ring circuses in nineteenth-century Paris, where Toulouse-Lautrec and Picasso became enchanted by aerialists and clowns. We meet P. T. Barnum, James Bailey and the enterprising Ringling Brothers, who created the golden age of American circuses. We explore contemporary transformations of the circus, from the whimsical Circus Oz in Australia to New York City’s Big Apple Circus. Circus people are central to the story: trick riders and tightrope walkers, sword swallowers and animal trainers, contortionists and clowns – these are the men and women who create the sensational, raucous, titillating and incomparable world of the circus.
Beautifully illustrated, rich in historical detail and full of colourful anecdotes, Linda Simon’s vibrant history is as enchanting as a night at the big-top itself.
