Andrew Carnegie was a critical agent in the triumph of industrial capitalism in the decades surrounding the turn of the twentieth century and by 1901 was arguably the richest man in the world. Differing from his contemporary Gilded Age industrial barons not in the means of accumulating his millions but in the ends to which he put them, Carnegie vowed to give back to the community all he earned. The "Gospel of Wealth" Essays and Other Writings, assembled here for the first time, demonstrate Andrew Carnegie's thoughts on wealth, poverty, the public good, and capitalism. Book jacket.

David Nasaw is currently a professor of history and director of the Center for the Humanities at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, he lives in Manhattan.
