Summary
"The early 20th-century in America was characterized by technological advancements. Chief among these was the rapid replacement of horse-drawn vehicles by gasoline-powered cars, which necessitated a nationwide network of paved highways and filling stations. Concern over unchecked industrialization and pollution led to a new awareness of nature and the creation of the nation's national park system. As well, the racial landscape of America was altered by the exodus of large numbers of African Americans from the rural South to the cities of the North. While U.S. participation in World War I was limited due to a lengthy policy of neutrality, the conflict produced a shift in the country's values that shaped both popular and political culture for the rest of the century, exemplified by the ratification in 1920 of the Nineteenth Amendment, granting women the right to vote."--Page 4 of cover
