From the Publisher"I think ANDREW CARNEGIE: 'ROBBER BARON' AS 'AMERICAN HERO' would be an excellent addition to my students' reading list."
"I was particularly impressed with the book's basic structure. It covers Carnegie's contribution to American history well, but then it goes the extra mile in a way I seldom see in such books. It places Carnegie in historical context by offering his own accounts ... and contemporary pieces by the likes of Booker T. Washington, Eugene Debs, Louis Brandeis, Edward Bellamy, and Mark Twain. All of these pieces ... provide numerous opportunities for students to begin understanding a figure like Carnegie in a broader context. ... My favorite aspects of the entire book are the modern pieces which speak loudly to today's students who hold Bill Gates, Donald Trump, and Ted Turner in such high regard. These selections allow professors to make connections to ... today's students who might then perceive Carnegie and others ... in a different light."
