Editorial Reviews

American Historical Review
Malone’s superbly crafted narrative treats the political economy of Butte and Montana from the gold boom of the 1870s through the absorption of the copper independents by the Standard Oil financed Amalgamated Copper Company in the first decade of the twentieth century.... The Battle for Butte is fine history: rich in detail, full of finely drawn people, masterfully clear where the subject matter is most complex, constructed to preserve something of the tone and atmosphere of the age.
