Inhaltsangabe: This volume presents documents that illustrate the variety of experiences and themes involved in the transformation of American political, economic, and social systems during the Gilded Age and Progressive Era (1870?1920).
This treasure trove of documents is a terrific classroom resource. The Links chose carefully to achieve geographic, chronological, and thematic balance. The book?s organization represents all aspects of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era and ties them together interpretatively. Professors will find themselves assigning documents from the reader week after week. This is one of the most useful teaching books I?ve seen. Glenda Gilmore, Yale University
Three cheers for William and Susannah Link, whose documentary reader offers interpretive structure and focus alongside its thoughtfully?chosen collection of primary sources. This reader is authoritative while still compact, giving enough points of view to spark controversy without closing down conversation. It is the perfect companion to the U.S. survey or more specialized courses in modern American history. Jane Dailey, University of Chicago
Wisely selected first?person accounts coupled with the author?s trenchant introductions bring to life civics and society at the dawn of modern America. It is a valuable resource that will engage students. Andrew Haley, University of Southern Mississippi
