About the book:

The years from 1880 up to the First World War were America's "Gilded Age"--but they also saw the exploding growth of the working class. Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, and Henry Ford became the symbols of our newfound prosperity and wealth. But An Age of Extremes portrays the other end of the American spectrum, too--the influx of immigrant workers, the rise of the Ku Klux Klan, the creation of the Populist Party, and the appearance of Mother Jones, John Muir, Lee Vick, and Jane Adams.It was a time of growth and dissent--a dramatic chapter in A History of US.
