From Library Journal:
Gale complements its "American Decades" series (e.g., American Decades, 1900-1909, LJ 6/15/96) by launching a companion set covering the story of America from prehistory to 1900. The current volume deals with the Gilded Age of late 19th-century American industrialization, the mass immigration of peoples from southern and eastern Europe, and the rise of the consumer society. Its 11 chapters, each written by scholars, cover world events, the arts, business, communications, government, law, social trends, religion, science, and sports. Each chapter opens with a chronology, followed by an essay on major persons, trends, and events. Next are short articles highlighting specific subjects interspersed with shorter pieces focusing on such topics as the banjo, the typewriter, the development of high schools, the Dalton Gang, the Gibson Girl, and the indoor bathroom. The chapters close with biographies of individuals who significantly influenced the period. The work as a whole opens with a broad historical essay, closes with subject and photograph indexes, and features illustrations, maps, and bibliographies throughout. As with its predecessors, little new material appears in this work. However, it does prove to be a convenient, easy-to-use resource on an interesting period of American history. Junior high school, high school, and public libraries will find this useful.?Stephen L. Hupp, Univ. of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, Pa.
