"Clear, graceful, and lively. An excellent collection of photographs enhances [the text]." The Historian "A lively, often entertaining and generally well-balanced treatment. . . enlivened by the lavish use of colorful, often amusing, anecdotes." History "A lucid and perceptive examination. . . a fine synthesis of primary research and recent scholarship that emphasizes personalities of the age without slighting the overriding issues. . . [It] should delight students." Journal of Economic History When the first edition ofAmerica in the Gilded Agewas published in 1984, it soon acquired the status of a classic, and was widely acknowledged as the first comprehensive account of the latter half of the nineteenth century to appear in many years. Sean Dennis Cashman traces the political and social saga of America as it passed through the momentous transformation of the Industrial Revolution and the settlement of the West. Revised and extended chapters focusing on immigration, labor, the great cities, and the American Renaissance are accompanied by a wealth of augmented and enhanced illustrations, many new to this addition.

Sean Dennis Cashman is the author of various popular books on American history, most recently the third edition of his classic America in the Gilded Age , also available from NYU Press.
