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).

  • Includes nearly 70 documents which cover the period from the end of the Civil War and Reconstruction in the 1870s  through World War I
  • Explores the experiences of people during the Gilded Age and Progressive Era from a variety of diverse perspectives, including important political and cultural leaders as well as everyday individuals
  • Charts the nationalization of American life and the establishment of the United States as a global power
  • Introduces students to historical analysis and encourages them to engage critically with primary sources
  • Introductory materials from the editors situate the documents within their historical context
  • A bibliography provides essential suggestions for further reading and research

Rezension: 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

We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web.
