9780810858299: Historical Dictionary of the Gilded Age (Historical Dictionaries of U.S. Politics and Political Eras)

The Gilded Age was an important three-decade period in American history. It was a time of transition, when the United States began to recover from its Civil War and post-war rebuilding phase. It was as a time of progress in technology and industry, of regression in race relations, and of stagnation in politics and foreign affairs. It was a time when poor southerners began farming for a mere share of the crop rather than for wages, when pioneers settled in the harsh land and climate of the Great Plains, and when hopeful prospectors set out in search of riches in the gold fields out West.

The Historical Dictionary of the Gilded Age relates the history of the major events, issues, people, and themes of the American "Gilded Age" (1869-1899). This period of unprecedented economic growth and technical advancement is chronicled in this reference and includes a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries.

About the Author:

T. Adams Upchurch is professor of history at East Georgia College.

Review:

An excellent resource covering a time period in U.S. history that is often forgotten. Recommended for academic and large public libraries. (Booklist, October 2009)

Spanning 1869 through 1889, this volume by Upchurch manages to cover the major players, issues, and events, while also introducing those issues that began in this period and would later define the Progressive Era that followed. . . . This single-volume reference work includes 232 well-written and concise, yet surprisingly detailed, entries with numerous cross-references. It will appeal to students and scholars of American history. Recommended. (CHOICE, December 2009)

Author Upchurch is well positioned to produce this handy and fascinating reference work. . . . Readers will find a number of special features quite useful. . . . This is a book worth having for anyone interested in American society during the latter half of the nineteenth century. (American Reference Books Annual)

Much to recommend it, and general readers will find it useful.... Excellent array of entries on political practices and reforms.... The entries provide at least entry-level enlightment, and usually a lot more. (Reviews In American History, September 2010)

The vividly written entries will serve as a good starting point for further research. (Library Journal, August 2009)
