Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-A straightforward overview of events occurring roughly between 1890-1919. Levinson reports on the inventions of the period, westward expansion, corporate growth, immigration, labor and political movements, and the emergence of an American national identity. This title's virtue is its wide scope: it briefly covers many topics that have also been treated in full-length books. This same wide scope, however, can also be seen as a drawback, as the copious presentation of information detracts from any overall theme development. This is particularly apparent in the final pages, in which, instead of attempting to draw a few conclusions about the era, Levinson continues to present disjointed paragraphs of information that seem to be afterthoughts. The volume is thoroughly illustrated with black-and-white photos and maps that sometimes appear a little too dark. This is a book for report topic browsers and bibliography stretchers and a good place to begin an inquiry or find a fact.-Kellie Flynn, St. Teresa High School, Decatur, IL
Chris Sherman
Levinson's overview of turn-of-the-century America dutifully discusses all the material that should be covered in a book of this sort--immigration, the rise of the cities, the organization of labor unions, the treatment of minorities, growing influence abroad, and much more. However, because the book is filled with anecdotes describing the way events shaped individual lives, readers will come away with a much truer sense of the period than if the author had used only straight facts. Levinson's writing style is clear and lively enough to encourage a broad range of readers, while the black-and-white photographs and attractive overall design add visual appeal. A bibliography is appended.
