Contradictions of the 1920s


The 1920s was a decade full of contradiction. It was a time of optimism, youth, and prosperity. However, it also saw a growing conservative trend, isolation, and intolerance.

In a three- to five-page essay, explain two of these contradictions and how they contributed to the development of America in the 1920s and beyond. Use at least three sources, including one refereed journal article.

The paper should be three to five pages long (not including title or reference pages), double-spaced, written according to apa guidelines, and should include a minimum of three sources (at least two peer-reviewed references besides the textbook). The introductory paragraph should include a thesis statement.
