First-hand accounts, photographs and newspaper cartoons add to the immediacy of this depiction of life in the industrial age. Husband and O'Loughlin, both from the University of Northern Iowa, cover every aspect of that period from national concerns, such as building the railroad system and organized labor, to more quotidian details, such as shopping, housework and fashion. Husband and O'Loughlin report a variety of experiences, noting, but not exploring, the controversies of the day. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
