  • About the Edition

    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.

      Twilight at the World of Tomorrow: Genius, Madness, Murder, and the World’s Fair on the Brink of War by James Mauro (New York: Ballantine Books, ) Category: History Format: Hard cover from a used bookstore Pages: ( with end matter) This is the first book I’ve read in January, and thus the first book of Twilight at the World of Tomorrow: Genius, Madness, Murder, and the World's Fair on the Brink of War James Mauro, Author. Ballantine $28 (p) ISBN .

    Comic and tragic in its details, Twilight at the World of Tomorrow has plenty of depth and is based on solid research, including use of the enormous fair archive at the New York Public Library. Still, its largest aspiration is to keep the reader turning the page. John Michael Greer described precisely how this can happen in his book “Twilight’s Last Gleaming.” If the American military were to fail, the illusion of a united country would dissipate before our eyes and the country would be gone within weeks — either in a peaceful breakup or a violent one, depending on how Washington would attempt.
