Industrialism and Reform: From Populism to the New Deal

After a limited examination of the structures, institutions, and values of the emerging American industrial society of the early twentieth century, this course concentrates on a study of reform movements, their goals, and their impact in the period from the 1890s to the 1930s. Readings address a combination of economic, political, social, and intellectual concerns and include both primary and secondary sources. Includes a substantial final research paper.
