In GCSE History one area studied is the history of the USA between 1840 and 1975. This, the third of eleven quizzes on the USA, is the first of three on the 1920s, and it looks at American society at the time - both the prosperity enjoyed by some, and the increase in organised crime.
Society in the USA was a mixed bag in the 1920s. For a minority of Americans it was a time of unprecedented prosperity and leisure, with new kinds of fashion, entertainment and lifestyle. But there was a darker side: a huge increase in organised crime and racism, a greater intolerance towards minorities and the persecution of progressives.
