$ 395.00

The 1900s were a decade of transformation for the world, but especially for the United States, which saw the rise of motion pictures, motor vehicles, and experimental flight; the influence of presidents Roosevelt and Taft; and disasters such as the San Francisco earthquake of 1906

This new title, in three volumes, includes essays on these important events and more, such as industrial advances, the acquisition of the Panama Canal, sporting events such as the first World Series, and scientific breakthroughs such as solar and terrestrial magnetism. Essays also cover topics of political ideology such as Roosevelt’s “big stick” method of foreign diplomacy, and various treaties of the time, as well as social justice issues affecting the lives of everyday Americans.
