    History Goodreads:Did you ever wonder what important and historical events that boomed the world before the day of your birth around 80-83 years ago and that maybe changed the way people are? Well the following questions will be explained in the following paragraphs.The famous author entertaining me about every historical event on that time Jim Corrigan wrote the amazing historical book “The 1920’s Decade in photos, The Roaring twenties”. This book was opportunely made to entertain a lot about different gangs in America, Benito Mussolini the Italian dictator wanting to restart the beautiful and the most popular Roman Empire. This book talks about the 1920’s a time of celebration and coming of age to modern time. In the beginning of the 1920’s the tragic human episode (World War 1) happened in human history. Music in the 1920’s became popular it was called “Jazz” often used in the 20th century. This book also talks about how a normal Italian citizen became a Prime Minister then a king after the King’s death. Benito Mussolini was a citizen who was a son of a working class couple in rural Italy. Benito tried to be a schoolteacher but did not work because of his temper. But, Instead he became a newspaper editor. Benito found he had a big talent by persuading people and swaying them with his words to make people think that Italy should make a new Roman Empire. Benito organized a gang called the fasci. The gang marched and protested that Mussolini should be the Prime Minister when the King honored him and made him the Prime Minister. Years past, then unfortunately the Italian King Victor Emmanuel the 3d died then Mussolini replaced him and then became a Dictator controlling a lot of power wanting to restart The New Roman Empire. This book talks also about how did the famous gangs in America such as New York, Chicago etc. them using prohibition the funny thing about it is that I learned it’s History by watching the famous movie “Gangs of New York” and it’s main actor “Leonardo Dicaprio”.When reading through my book I asked myself a lot of questions. First, I wondered what were the achievements of that civilization. There were many achievements and many historical events in the 20’s. I made a choice to entertain you about the famous Italian Dictator Benito Mussolini. Benito Mussolini came from humble and poor beginnings. He lived with his family. Benito was son of a working class couple in rural Italy. In School, Benito Mussolini showed great intelligence and knowledge but a quick temper. When he grew up he was willing to be a public school teacher but did not work because of his Temper. Mussolini became a great newspaper editor. He wrote about how the Italian Roman Empire was like and how could Italians make together the New and amazing Roman Empire. Mussolini became popular and most people converted to his beliefs to start the New Roman Empire. His people that believed were called the Fasci. The fascism gang (group) and Mussolini marched to Rome protesting using violence towards their enemies. The Achievements were that King Victor Emmanuel III made him prime minister. When King Victor Emmanuel III died Mussolini got in charge of his monarchy (became the new king) and became a dictator. The causes were that Mussolini made self-improvements to be the King by swaying and also persuading people about his fabulous documents of Italy’s reconstitution of restarting the Roman Empire again. Another cause was that many people were inspired about Mussolini’s work; most Italians believed that Ancient Rome had to grow a new empire. After Mussolini becoming the new King many causes outraged people living in Italy because he became a traitor and a dictator when he made rules to complicate peoples lives and making them strict. Thus I would recognize this book to people who are interested about the twenties and who love history. I would also recommend this book to people who admire sports because some of the sport stars I didn’t mention like babe Ruth etc. As one can see, I would recommend this book to people who are interested in history and I would recommend this book to people that admire politics and leaders.

    Very poorly organized and redundant.
