The Gilded Age: Perspectives on the Origins of Modern America

by

The Gilded Age: Perspectives on the Origins of Modern America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The United States that entered the twentieth century was vastly different from the nation that emerged from the Civil War. Industrialization, mass immigration, the growing presence of women in the work force, and the rapid advance of the cities had transformed American society. Broad in scope, The Gilded Age brings together sixteen original essays that offer lively syntheses of modern scholarship while making their own interpretive arguments. These engaging pieces allow students to consider the various societal, cultural and political factors that make studying the Gilded Age crucial to our understanding of America today. Charles W. Calhoun connects all of these essays with a comprehensive introduction that places each article in an understandable historical context. For the second edition of this successful book, each essay was revised and three new pieces have been added that explore technology, consumerism, intellectual life, and race in late nineteenth century America.

Book News Annotation:

The 1996 first edition has been substantially changed to meet the request of college instructors for a more updated account of American life in the late 19th century. The second edition bristles with modern scholarship and interpretive argument as the contributing historians discuss the major trends, events, and personalities associated with different aspects of life.
