From the cover: “Here, indeed, is the amazing story of the march of democracy, the sweep of a new people across a great continent, their ascent to world pre-eminence during the most exciting seventy years the world has ever seen!

From the national crisis of civil war to the sad days of the great depression, from the scandals of Grant to the scandals of Handing, from the settling of the West and the great railroad hijackers to the urbanization of the West and the bootlegging hijackers, from Tweed to Penrose, from the opera bouffe Spanish-American War to the awful destruction of the World War, from the panics of 73 and ‘93 and ‘07 to the panic of ‘29 et seq. , from the courage of Cleveland to the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt, from Walt Whitman to Ernest Hemingway, from gaslight to remote control, from innocence to internationalism — the pulsating story of the American people is related by the greatest popular historian of our day.”
