Description

A Companion to the Gilded Age and Progressive Era presents a collection of new historiographic essays covering the years between 1877 and 1920, a period which saw the U.S. emerge from the ashes of Reconstruction to become a world power.

The single, definitive resource for the latest state of knowledge relating to the history and historiography of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era

Features contributions by leading scholars in a wide range of relevant specialties

Coverage of the period includes geographic, social, cultural, economic, political, diplomatic, ethnic, racial, gendered, religious, global, and ecological themes and approaches

In today’s era, often referred to as a “second Gilded Age,” this book offers relevant historical analysis of the factors that helped create contemporary society

Fills an important chronological gap in period-based American history collections
