Since their inception in the mid-19th century, World Fairs have introduced Americans to exotic pleasures, like belly dancing and the ferris wheel, and groundbreaking technologies such as telephones and x-rays. Profiling more than 30 fairs from 1853 to 1984, the authors demonstrate how the fairs reflected and influenced the ideals and complexities of their times. Includes archival photo of exhibits and souvenirs.
