Attempting to tell the whole truth of the matter in a fair way, Davis studies the politics, history, and economics of the Union Pacific Railway in this 1894 volume. He discusses the early unachieved projects, issues which kept the railway from being built, the national push for construction, and the corruption—both financial and political—which followed. The Yale Review considered Davis’s effort “easily the best book on the subject.”
