Twilight at the World of Tomorrow
Genius, Madness, Murder, and the 1939 World's Fair on the Brink of WarBook - 2010
The summer of 1939 was an epic turning point for America?a brief window between the Great Depression and World War II. It was the last season of unbridled hope for peace and prosperity; by Labor Day, the Nazis were in Poland. And nothing would come to symbolize this transformation from acute optimism to fear and dread more than the 1939 New York World?s Fair.
