Review: The Gilded Age: Perspectives on the Origins of Modern America

The Gilded Age: Perspectives on the Origins of Modern America
The Gilded Age: Perspectives on the Origins of Modern America by Charles W. Calhoun

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a fascinating look at nearly all of the major (and some of the minor) aspects of the Gilded Age by some of the best historians whose focus is on that era. Each essay lends insight to an overall understanding of the Gilded Age as well as the specific subject address in that essay, without being burdensome or focusing on superfluities without interest to the lay reader. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the history of the United States and especially in exploring the development, intellectual, social, and material, of the world we know today.
