Editorial Reviews

Review

In this general history of Missouri from 1875 to 1919 authors Lawrence O. Christensen and Gary R. Kremer have provided a comprehensive survey of events, trends, and themes during the Gilded Age and Populist-Progressive Era. . . . This volume of A History of Missouri is a solid piece of scholarship. The coverage is sensible. Indeed, the book is what it purports to be, a thorough-going history of the Show-me State, and it exhibits a good feeling for the state and its people. . . . This volume should be widely used and will surely have lasting value."
--Journal of Southern History



This volume rests upon broad and deep research in the relevant scholarship, newspapers, and other sources. Recognizing that most Missourians lived outside the big cities, the authors . . . give Outstate Missouri' the attention it deserves. Aware that history is not shaped only by elites, they say much about other people, including women and African Americans."--Journal of the West



The fourth installation of the History of Missouri series provides a useful . . . synthesis of the state's annals from the Constitution of 1875 to the conclusion of the Great War. For students and scholars interested in obtaining an overview of the key themes, challenges, and solutions proffered by Missourians during these years, Lawrence O. Christensen and Gary R. Kremer's publication offers a well-written and well-researched addition to other anthologies."--Illinois Historical Journal



The authors have managed to produce a highly readable history of Missouri from 1875 to 1919 that is enlivened with a wealth of anecdotal material and conveys a strong sense of the variety of life experiences in the state. By maintaining a reasonably tight focus on the economic modernization of the state and on the evolving political response to that historical process, they have fashioned a conceptual framework that lends a high degree of thematic unity to what is essentially the story of amazing transformation."--Annals of Iowa
