Rated 5 out of 5 by from much ignored part of US history revealed Given our much vaunted education system in Canada seems to think American history doesn't need to be taught to us, I'm glad for books like this that fills in a huge gap in my knowledge of North American history. The book covers the post-Civil War through Roaring '20s in America. His take on how racism grew after the Civil War was very thought provoking as to the reasons why.

Editorial Reviews

“In this sweeping and charged history, Jackson Lears brilliantly evokes a defining era in American history. He recasts what we have blandly called the ‘Gilded Age,’ revealing a time of profound change, sharp conflict, and enduring consequence.”
