Between 1890 and 1920, big American industrial cities represented the frontier for the more than 23 million immigrants from southern and eastern Europe, Asia, and Central America, as well as for the African-Americans from the South. The development of mass consumption industries and the interventionism of the federal government provided security at the workplace and a general improvement in living standards for blue collar workers. The local party machines, the industrial unions and the effects of the First World War fully integrated the new immigrants into politics. Mass culture and entertainment made Americanization easier and, together with organised crime, were a quick way of social ascent.
