Essay: "The Rediscovery of Jones." Simeon Strunsky

One-minute review: The Jones family is us. Disregarded in the books by sociologists in the1920’s, the Jones family disappeared in the statistics of the census. But in the next decade of the 1930’s, the Joneses will become of interest, because the Jones family is like you and me and all the rest of us Americans.
