9780313320972: The Progressive Era: Primary Documents on Events from 1890 to 1914 (Debating Historical Issues in the Media of the Time)

Beginning with an extensive overview essay of the period, this book focuses on the issues of the Progressive Era through contemporary accounts of the people involved. Each issue is presented with an introductory essay and multiple primary documents from the newspapers of the day, which illustrate both sides of the debate. This is a perfect resource for students interested in the controversial and tumultuous changes America underwent during the Industrial Age and up to the start of World War I.

With the death of southern reconstruction, Americans looked first westward and then abroad to fulfill their manifest destiny. Along the way, robber barons built railroads and oil trusts, populism burned across the prairies, currency went off the gold standard, immigrants poured into urban areas, and the United States won imperial outposts in Cuba and the Philippines.

About the Author:

ELIZABETH V. BURT is Associate Professor at the School of Communication, University of Hartford. She is the author of Women's Press Organizations, 1881-1999 (Greenwood Press, 2000), and has published many articles and book chapters on issues of the Progressive Era, social movements, and the woman suffrage movement.

Review:

"Every chapter is excellent. Burt's writing is graceful and engaging. She presents each issue clearly, in context, and with multiple points of view. The book could be used as a main text for a progressive era journalism class, and as a secondary text for a journalism history of an American history course. It would also be useful as a secondary text for a political science class. This book should also be considered for use in media diversity classes where the historical context of labor clases, census controversy, lynching, immigration, and women's suffrage all resonate with and provide background for today's class, race. and gender issues."-American Journalism
