History of the United States History of the United States: From the Compromise of 1850 to the McKinley-Bryan Campaign Ofrom the Compromise of 1850 to the McKinley-Bryan Campaign of 1896, Vol. VIII (in Eight Volumes) F 1896, Vol. VIII (in Eight Volumes)
Hardcover. 636 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.6in.This classic survey of one of the most dramatic eras in American history is most notable, perhaps, for the insight it offers into the mindset of the era itself. First published from 1893 through 1906, in the immediate aftermath of the events it covers, it was criticized even then for the authors clear bias-Rhodes believed it was a mistake to have given black men the right to vote after the Civil War. Today, it remains a fascinating look at the times through a prism that is itself of historical interest. This eight-volume set is a replica of the 1920 new edition. Volume VIII covers: the railroad strike of 1877 the Molly Maguires the assassination of Garfield the Chinese question the Mugwump Campaign the Anti-trust Act of 1890 the Homestead Strike financial crisis of 1893 the Chicago railway strike and much more. After earning a fortune in iron, coal, and steel, American author JAMES FORD RHODES (1848-1927) retired to write about history, for which he won the Loubat Prize from the Berlin Academy of Sciences (1901) and the gold medal from the National Institute of Arts and Letters (1910). He is also the author of the single-volume History of the Civil War, 1861-1865 (1918), available from Cosimo. This item ships from multiple locations.
