By Burton J. Hendrick. New Haven: Yale University Press. A comprehensive survey of the United States, at the end of the Civil War, would reveal a state of society which bears little resemblance to that of today. Almost all those commonplace fundamentals of existence, the things that contribute to our bodily comfort while they vex us with economic and political problems, had not yet made their appearance.

Since the book was written in 1919, it was fascinating to see how the various industries have changed from post-Civil-War to post-World-War-I to now. For example, I didn't realize that America once exported oil. Chapter One compared 1865 to 1919 in terms of technology and business. Chapter Two gave an overview history of the discovery and business of oil and described how "the first great American Trust," the Standard Oil Company, was formed. Chapter Three gave an overview history of the major development and business of steel and how Carnegie Steel Company was formed.

The Age Of Big Business: This book is surprisingly excellent. I am in Healthcare and have virtually no interest in big business however, I found this book at my local library while looking for something else and started reading a random page. This book speaks of the Industrial Revolution with Vanderbuilt, Edison, Rockfeller, etc and how they made their fortunes. Engagingly written and insiteful. I highly recommend this book for anyone ages 16-adult It's very easy to read and keeps your interest! Read it and enjoy.

When I got the book I did not realize it was written in 1919. But what a pleasant surprise to hear a perspective from this time period. This short book is a quick read but covers the topic of the captains while adding keen insights and admiration mixed with caution.

A bit leftist, but not a total waste of time for the thoughtful reader. Beware of accepting the premises of the author.

what the fathers of the states did more than hundred years ago, still means a lot to us now. Only to be unsatisfied with the present, and to be more efficient, labor saving, can we divise those new ways to do what should be done. And in such way, the civilization of humanity developed.
