This lavish history of magazines in America features the key events in the past of the country. From the era of Revolution with the War of Independence, to America's participation in the two World Wars, the volume puts together the most emblematic articles from contemporary magazines, creating a history that, as states the introduction, delves deeper than any mere chronological presentation of events. The magazines allow a special insight into the minds of the people in these times, not only recounting the events as they happened but also showing how they were viewed and described by contemporaries.
