Century of Change: America in Pictures 1900-2000

Essays by Erica Jong, Barbara Ehrenreich, and others fill ”Life”’s latest compendium

Posted on

The lavishly mounted companion volume to LIFE’s best-selling Our Century in Pictures, Century of Change: America in Pictures 1900-2000, subdivides its 700-plus photographs into ”Sex,” ”Design,” ”Celebrity,” ”Shopping,” and half a dozen other categories and fleshes them out with essays by Erica Jong, Barbara Ehrenreich, and others. The result is a century’s-greatest-visual-hits package that arrives just in time for what purists will remind you is the real dawn of the new millennium.
