"Unbridled ambition, greed, corruption, ' creative destruction, ' and a bit of conscience--Michael Hiltzik's vivid account of the railroad barons in the Gilded Age shows us the workings of unbridled capitalism at its zenith (or nadir, as the case may be). The names Morgan, Harriman, Pullman, Hill, Villard, Rockefeller will forever be associated with creating America's first great infrastructure and making America 'modern.'-- "Gordon H. Chang, author of Ghosts of Gold Mountain: The Epic Story of the Chinese Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad"
"Were the railroad barons of the nineteenth century great entrepreneurs in the American spirit who built a remarkable network of railroads? Or were they robbers who fleeced local people and passengers alike? In this superb and comprehensive book, Hiltzik lets you decide, with the help of a few hints."-- "Christian Wolmar, author of the The Great Railroad Revolution: The History of Trains in America " --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
