Overview

At the end of the Reconstruction, the spread of science and technology, industrialism, urbanization, immigration, and economic depressions eroded Americans' conventional beliefs in individualism and a divinely ordained social system.

This subtle and sophisticated study combines the virtues of historical narrative, sociological analysis, and social criticism.
