Abstract

William Jennings Bryan waged a valiant campaign against Republican William McKinley. McKinley’s decisive victory underscored the profound transformation of the country since 1865. The Republicans swept into office with the votes of a now dominant middle class that shifted politi - cal and social priorities from rural to suburban and from producerism to consumerism. As the Gilded Age faded into Progressivism, many might see at least some gold beneath the gilt. The generation so ably chronicled in The Republic for Which It Stands provided the early social, political, and economic response to industrialism through laws, lawsuits, reform move- ments, and eloquent protest and dissent, and witnessed the dawn of an environmental movement. Many of them would agree with White that at the dawn of the new century, “It was time to begin again” (872). Joan Waugh joan waugh, professor of history in the UCLA Department of History, is the coauthor of The American War: A History of the Civil War Era (Flip Learning, 2015). Nature’s Noblemen: Transatlantic Masculinities and the Nineteenth-Century American West. By Monica Rico. (New Haven, Conn.: Yale University Press, 2013. Pp. 287. Cloth, $45.00.)
