New Spirits: Americans in the "Gilded Age," 1865-1905, Third Edition, provides a fascinating look at one of the most crucial chapters in U.S. history. Rejecting the stereotype of a "Gilded Age" dominated by "robber barons," author Rebecca Edwards invites us to look more closely at the period when the United States became a modern industrial nation and asserted its place as a leader on the world stage.

In a concise, engaging narrative, Edwards recounts the contradictions of the era, including stories of tragedy and injustice alongside tales of humor, endurance, and triumph. She offers a balanced perspective that considers many viewpoints, including those of native-born whites, Native Americans, African Americans, and an array of Asian, Mexican, and European immigrants.

About the Author:


Rebecca Edwards is Professor of History on the Eloise Ellery Chair at Vassar College. She is the author of Angels in the Machinery: Gender in American Party Politics from the Civil War to the Progressive Era (OUP, 1997) and coauthor, with James A. Henretta and Robert O. Self, of America's History, Seventh Edition (2011).

Review:


"Edwards does an excellent job of identifying cultural trends and changes of the period and provides extensive examples, derived from a prodigious amount of research."--Dorothy Pratt, University of South Carolina


"Edwards has accomplished a remarkable feat: she has written a book that folds four decades of American history into a superb and short synthesis without sacrificing details and people usually rendered to the margins of the master narrative."--Ann-Marie Adams,
Rutgers University-New Brunswick


"Edwards deftly mirrors the process of critical thinking. By avoiding the traditional themes of race, class, gender, and so on, she develops new ways of grouping the historical materials that bring new life to the issues she discusses."--Reynolds J. Scott-Childress, State University of New York at New Paltz
