The period from 1870 to 1900 in the United States has become known as the Gilded Age, during which America was transformed almost beyond recognition. In the 1870s, the country was still recovering from a horrendously destructive Civil War. The nation was still mainly agrarian; cities were relatively small and large-scale industry almost non-existent. Thirty years later, the U.S. had become an industrial powerhouse with massive cities featuring skyscrapers, electric lights, automobiles on the streets, and subways running below. An influx of immigrants from different parts of the world had changed the very nature of American society which featured almost unimaginable wealth living side-by-side with abject poverty. Inside you will read about... ✓ Taming the Wild West ✓ Robber Barons and Captains of Industry ✓ Emergence of Labor Unions and Women’s Movements ✓ The New Immigrants ✓ Invention and Innovation And much more! The Gilded Age was an era of entrepreneurs, inventions, industrial development, and new ideas. Most of all, it was a period of rapid and profound change which came at a high cost for the working class. In a Golden Age, life is good for everyone. But in a Gilded Age, there is only a thin surface of gold over underlying base metal, a metaphor for a small number of fabulously wealthy people who grew rich by exploiting vast numbers who lived in poverty. This is the story of the Gilded Age of America.

    So reminiscent of the process of industrialization in India. It is also a sad reminder of the fact that most of India is almost a century behind the US. There are, however, enormous lessons from what happened in the US during the last quarter of the 19th century as we grapple with social issues that co-exist with industrial development.

    Very brief overview. For a 50 page book it covers a lot in a concise manner. If you aren't sure what the Gilded Age was, read this. Then you can do additional research. :-)

    I found this book to be very informative about events in the United States from 1870 to 1900. I found it very interesting that the name came from Mark Twain, a metaphor, in that it appeared as gold but that was only the surface and underlying was base metal. In this short period of thirty years, the United States changed very rapidly, from the wild west to the Wright brothers. Worth the read.

    Like A School Textbook I enjoyed this as a decent, high-level, easy-to-read book that gave a good "taste" of the era, and gives someone with only a general interest a chance to see if they want to dig more deeply into it.

    Expansion, immigration, and invention I had read numerous biographies from this time period and it help unify the period with a framework. I recommend it.

    Nicely done! I liked a lot of the contrasts they made, and the nuanced portrayal of the big names featured in the gilded age.
