Hard Times: An Illustrated Oral History of the Great Depression

Author(s): Studs Terkel


First published in 1970, Studs Terkel's Hard Times has been called 'a huge anthem in praise of the American spirit' (Saturday Review) and 'an invaluable record' (New York Times). With grace and compassion, Terkel evokes a mosaic of memories from artists, politicians, businessmen, writers, racketeers, speakeasy operators, strikers, farmers, people who were just kids and those who remember losing a fortune. Now, in a beautiful new illustrated edition, Studs's interviews are complemented by Farm Security Administration photographs from the Library of Congress.
