Author(s): Husband, Julie; O'Loughlin, Jim;
Contributors: Husband, Julie; O'Loughlin, Jim;
Abstract:

Not just about the rise of the factories or the emergence of the modern city, this fascinating history conveys how it felt to work the assembly line and walk the bustling urban streets.


• Provides an overview of the dramatic economic changes occurring in the United States during industrialization, especially in the textile, meatpacking, steel, and railroad industries

• Describes a political culture marked by high participation rates in the North, active suppression of the African American vote in the South, and a youth culture that made voting an important male rite of passage

• Offers primary documents that invite readers to consider contrasting positions on a variety of issues, including how white supremacists justified violence and suppression of the black vote and how African American activists spoke out to resist this

• Explores a variety of educational models, including manual education, Montessori education, and single-sex education, that resonate with contemporary debates on education
