The Gilded Age : Overture to the American Century


The Gilded Age : Overture to the American Century

Description

The Gilded Age is in the air! This beautifully designed, fully illustrated, insightful book by noted historian Alan Axelrod provides a vivid view of American life and thought during that era. The Gilded Age--the name coined by Mark Twain to refer to the period of rapid economic growth in America between the 1870s and 1900--offers some intriguing parallels to our own time. Prolific historian Alan Axelrod tackles this subject in a fresh way, exploring "this intense era in all its dimensions. . . . This book will reveal it . . . as, truly, the overture of the 'American Century.'" He also looks at how it presaged our current era, which many are calling the "Second Gilded Age." Photographs, political cartoons, engravings, news clippings, and other ephemera help bring this fascinating period into focus.
