9781285433424: Major Problems in the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era (Major Problems in American History)

MAJOR PROBLEMS IN THE GILDED AGE AND THE PROGRESSIVE ERA, Third Edition, presents a carefully selected group of readings on the transformative period between 1877 and 1920 that allow students to evaluate primary sources, test the interpretations of distinguished historians, and draw their own conclusions. Covering capitalism, labor movements, the Great War, and roots of Progressive reform movements the book takes a roughly chronological approach, emphasizing themes that continue to resonate today. As part of Cengage Learning's Major Problems in American History Series, the book is designed to encourage critical thinking about history, and contains primary documents and analytical essays as well as introductions, headnotes to provide context, up-to-date bibliographies, and full document sources.
