The Human Tradition in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era
Part of the The Human Tradition in America series
The period between 1870 and 1920 was one of the most dynamic in American history.
This era witnessed the invention of the automobile, the establishment of women's suffrage, and the opening of the Panama Canal.
While a time of great advance-ment, the Gilded Age and Progressive Era were also periods of uncertainty as Americans coped with corrupt politicians, unchecked big business, and a vast influx of immigrants.
SR Books offers a new approach to this time period in its book The Human Tradition in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era.
This volume looks at the experiences of 13 people who contributed to the shaping of American culture and thought during this period.
These concise accounts are written by leading historians and give students an intimate view of history.
This is an excellent text for courses in American studies.
