Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade.11561 11561--American in the Gilded Age is a very thorough overview of a fascinating time period in American history. Cashman manages to cover all of the key events, changes, and people during this time period, but his treatment tends to become uneven toward the end. The Progressive Movement did not begin with Theodore Roosevelt, but rather boosted him to national prominence, but Cashman almost glosses over this period with just a few pages. However, don't let this detract from the overall strength of this book in capturing the sociological changes the US experienced during this time. Cashman's prose is not hard to follow and his organization of the topics is first rate, however, this is not a casual read like "Victorian America." I recommend both America in the Gilded Age and Victorian America as overviews of the roughly the same timeframe with different approaches. [Reader review]
