About the book:

Broad in scope, The Gilded Age consists of 14 original essays, each written by an expert in the field. Topics have been selected so that students can appreciate the various societal and cultural factors that make studying the Gilded Age crucial to our understanding of America today. The United States that entered the twentieth century was vastly different from the nation that had emerged from the Civil War. Industrialization, mass immigration, the growing presence of women in the work force, and the rapid advancement of the cities had transformed American society. Professor Calhoun has written a comprehensive introduction that places each article in an understandable historical context. Each essay concludes with a list of suggested readings.

The Gilded Age: Essays on the Origins of Modern America will be welcomed by professors and students examining one of the most fascinating eras in America's history.
