Not hard to understand why this author is highly respected. The late 19th century is not that far from recent events and this book helps to understand that income inequality and the 1%ers are nothing new. After Reconstruction ended in 1876 and the frontier closed shortly thereafter the nation became one as business grew North, South and West into a unified whole. Problems still remained but the nation became one and was prepared for the international expansion following 1900.
