Since Yesterday: The 1930s in America, September 3, 1929–September 3, 1939

'“Mr. Allen’s shining service is to recall the things that have blurred equally with those that have stuck in memory. No one else does this sort of thing so well. . . . One would predict for this book a sound success and long survival. Its basic merits are honesty, good nature, detachment without indifference, a keen eye for survival in news values. Somehow it conveys the impression of the American people telling their own story in autobiographical form.” —The New York Times   “Vividly and with great skills [Allen] marshals the men, the mountebanks, the measures, and the events of ten years of American life and causes them to march before us in orderly panathenaic procession.” —Saturday Review   “[Allen] is one of our most urbane and penetrating social historians.” —The Christian Science Monitor'
