Our Times is a powerful social history of America from 1900 to 1925, told with a reporter's firsthand knowledge and a historian's analytical wisdom. Originally published in six volumes from 1926 to 1933 by Mark Sullivan, one of the most highly respected journalists of his day, it has now been abridged by an equally eminent journalist, CBS News correspondent Dan Rather. This lively account is filled with anecdotes and vivid personalities, observations both thought-provoking and humorous, and dozens of illustrations from contemporary sources.
