In the years between the Civil War and the First World War, Americans lived in a nation quite different from that of their parents, the values of a burgeoning industrial and urban society transforming traditional notions of democracy. At the same time, other far-reaching developments--the eclipsing of countryside and farm by city and factory, substantial changes in communications and transportation, revolutionary innovations in agriculture, a large wave of immigration, the rise of labour unions, and the emergence of the United States as a world power--gave these years a distinctive character and established the foundations of modern America. Revised to reflect the latest scholarship on the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, this classic text remains a great choice as a core text for courses in the Gilded Age or as a highly useful supplement for the US history survey.

About the Author:

Vincent P. De Santis is Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Notre Dame, where he has taught for many years. After receiving his Ph.D. From Johns Hopkins University as a student of C. Vann Woodward, Professor De Santis went on to specialize in United States history since 1865, particularly in politics, foreign affairs, the Presidency, and the American Peace Movement. The author or co-author of a number of books, including Republicans Face the Southern Question, The Democratic Experience, and A History of United State Foreign Policy, he has been a Guggenheim Fellow and a Fulbright Professor to Italy, Australia, and India and has received various awards and fellowships from the American Philosophical Society, the Huntington Library, and the Schlesinger Library.

An active member of the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians, the Southern Historical Association, and the Society of American Historians, Professor De Santis currently divides his time between Notre Dame, Indiana, and Victoria, British Columbia.
