    1. This author has a great ability to bring cause and effect into light in a clear, down to earth manner that makes reading history not only enjoyable but also leaves you with clear understanding in a way no text book does I haven t come across a book by this author that I didn t like I also highly recommend his California gold rush book.


    2. Americans in the 1980s might ve been a better subtitle as in portraits of rich, powerful, famous men of the 1890s While this approach allowed some insight into the culture as a whole a chapter on Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Morgan sketched the impacts of industrialization, and a comparison of Booker Washington to W.E.B DuBois opened a window into race relations the book, though solid and well researched, is well suited to those who like reading about influential men, not those looking for an over [...]


    3. The Restless Decade of H.W Brands is a book that lives up to its name Brands takes his readers for a trip although out America in the last decade of the nineteenth century Brands presents a nation that is on the edge, with the end of century that began with President John Adams and finished with William McKinley saw the nation grow from the Appalachian Mountains to the Pacific Ocean split in half and fight and the saw the end of slavery and the beginning of Jim Crow, the American people were uns [...]


    4. Finally picked this back up to finish This is one of my favorite periods of American history, so the issue for me is reading much of the content previously And also in often in biographical forms Brands writing is dryer history, feeling like it s being taught from above thru the recoded lives of the tycoons, Presidents and warriors Just doesn t measure up well for me


    5. One of Brands earlier books written in 1995 and perhaps it shows as it isn t on par with some of his recent books which are consistently fascinating and informative This one tries to cover the important events of the 1890s which seems simple enough Yet, as Brands shows, the 1890s brought to America widespread social, political, and economic changes, and in that regard I feel this book could have been effective if it had concentrated on just one of those three main aspects Brands, who is a grea [...]


    6. I don t normally like nonfiction, but this is told in such a way that you don t get too bogged down in the details I actually learned something too.


    7. A very perceptive book that points out how much the 1890 s and our times are the same A growing social divide between the very rich and the poor Growing control that large businesses have over our government, aggressive foreign policy and a depression that required a bail out of the government by Wall Street mirrors our times in many ways.


    8. One of Mr Brands earliest books, well written in his story telling fashion Interesting presentation to draw parallels between 1890s and 1990s Crisp analysis, minor bias but mostly even handed, captures and illuminates era 4 stars.


    9. Good intro to economic, political, social, cultural issues of the decade written in a very engaging style.


    10. The 1890s and the 1990s in the USA had in common than one might first expect, after 100 years the country in 1990 was working out many of the same issues it was in 1890.



    11. The book is helpful to know about American during the 1890s in details including the economic, the financial, the political, and the social changes.
