By Robert C. Nesbit

Although the years from 1873-1893 lacked the well known, dramatic events of the periods before and after, this period presented a major transformation in the state's economy. This volume presents a balanced, comprehensive, and witty account of these two decades of dynamic growth and change in Wisconsin society, business, and industry. Concentrating on three major areas: the economy, communities, and politics and government, this volume in the History of Wisconsin series adds substantially to our knowledge and understanding of this crucial, but generally little-understood, period.
