Praise for "American Colossus"
"Mr. Brands, a terrific writer who commands his material, handles this sprawling, complicated story with authority and panache. A book that might have been a worthy but boring tome turns out to be as close as serious history gets to a page turner...."American Colossus" is a first-rate overview of one of the most important periods in American history, one without which the American Century could not have happened."
--John Steele Gordon, "The New York Times"

"A superb new history....This is a big, brash narrative running from the Confederate surrender at Appomattox to the trust busting of Theodore Roosevelt....I read swaths of this book twice, just to savor Brands' storytelling and mastery of detail."
--James Pressley, Bloomberg News

Reseña del editor:

In this grand-scale narrative history, two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist H. W. Brands brilliantly portrays the emergence, in a remarkably short time, of a recognizably modern America.
American Colossus captures the decades between the Civil War and the turn of the twentieth century, when a few breathtakingly wealthy businessmen transformed the United States from an agrarian economy to a world power. From the first Pennsylvania oil gushers to the rise of Chicago skyscrapers, this spellbinding narrative shows how men like Morgan, Carnegie, and Rockefeller ushered in a new era of unbridled capitalism. In the end America achieved unimaginable wealth, but not without cost to its traditional democratic values."
