Summary
Distinguished historian Brendon brings the tragic, dismal days of the 1930s to life in this sweeping narrative. "The Dark Valley" captures the vast scope of history as well as the minutia of everyday life, rendering a huge topic comprehensible and creating a gripping, page-turning drama of illustrations. The 1930s were perhaps the seminal decade in twentieth-century history, a dark time of global depression that displaced millions, paralyzed the liberal democracies, gave rise to totalitarian regimes, and, ultimately, led to the Second World War. In this sweeping history, Piers Brendon brings the tragic, dismal days of the 1930s to life. From Stalinist pogroms to New Deal programs, Brendon re-creates the full scope of a slow international descent towards war. Offering perfect sketches of the players, riveting descriptions of major events and crises, and telling details from everyday life, he offers both a grand, rousing narrative and an intimate portrait of an era that make sense out of the fascinating, complicated, and profoundly influential years of the 1930s
