Summary
"While often referred to as the "Gilded Age", the period between 1870 and 1900 in the United States actually encompassed both extravagant wealth and dire poverty. Owing to this disparity, political agitators and reformists armed with socialist and anarchist manifestos flourished, and the distinction between urban life and rural life grew increasingly sharper, creating an entirely new set of living conditions and social customs"--Cover, P.[4]
