Paul Donnelley, Express.co.uk 5* review. American history at its best.
Eric Foner, Times Literary Supplement (White) is one of the outstanding historians of his generation. It is difficult to think of many others who can match the range, depth, originality and influence of his writings.
Foreign Affairs When questions of race, economic inequality, and the rise of giant corporate monopolies and a plutocratic elite dominate U.S. politics, it is time to take another look at Reconstruction and the Gilded Age...The rich history of those years (The Industrial Revolution) can be difficult to follow; readers will thank White for the clear prose and strong narrative drive that makes this complicated story easier to understand.
Times Literary Supplement [White] is one of the outstanding historians of his generation. It is difficult to think of many others who can match the range, depth, originality and influence of his writings, which include a prize-winning account of the construction of the transcontinental railroads, an environmental history of the Columbia River Valley, a general history of the American West, and even a memoir of his mothers life as an emigrant from Ireland.
White is to be commended for assuming responsibility for this part of the series after more than one historical had abandoned it. His footnotes and bibliography reveal a remarkable command of the historical literature which he uses to construct a vast, sprawling and often original panorama of the American economy, politics and society between 1865 and 1896.

The New York Times Book Review There is almost nothing about the era that White fails to treat with intelligence and style... Richard White has related a decisive part of its history with stamina and skill.
Economist But most of all Mr White's book should be read not just because it has so much to say about the latter part of the 19th century, but also because it casts light on America's current problems with giant companies and roiling populism.
The Boston Globe The 10th entry in the series, covering the United States during Reconstruction and the Gilded Age, may be the most erudite and sweeping of them all as well as among the most timely, reminding during a time of turmoil that the divisive tensions of race and class inequities, economic upheaval, and regional schisms have deep, tangled roots.
The Wall Street Journal In this monumental yet highly readable book, Mr. White has given us a panorama of an age that in many ways ...
