Editorial Reviews

"It was a pleasure to read this book. It is an interpretive essay about the accelerated industrialization of the United States between 1860 and 1895 and the concomitant emergence of giant enterprises. ... The time span of this book makes it the logical sequel to Stuart Bruchey's The Roots of American Economic Growth, 1607-1861 and an ideal text for courses on United States business history. ... The book is written with clarity and imagination [and] has a broader perspective of the economic forces and political policies that transformed American society after the Civil War."-The Journal of American History
