    An enlightening read about the United States in the late 19th to early 20th Century

    This book takes up the topic of American political and cultural thought between the period in history bounded by the end of the Civil War and the creation of the League of Nations. Portrayed as a series of tensions (urban vs rural, labor vs industry, hawk vs dove, immigration and race relations) the author examines various topics that helped to propel the United States in to the "modern" world.

    I was particularly drawn to this book because I hoped it would help me to understand a period in history of the United States for which there seems to be relatively little written when compared to topics such as the Civil War and World War II. This book is not a "light read". I found it to be well written and the author sent me to the dictionary on several occasions (which I judge to be a good thing). The chapters tended to be rather long and there were a couple of occasions where I found my thoughts drifting but on the whole, the author kept my attention and I feel I have a better understanding of the period for my efforts.
