By Richard Hofstadter. No service of the historian is more valuable, or less rewarded, than his helping us to identify and break up the stereotypes through which we have been seeing our past. But because of its subtlety and originality, its hostility to cliché, The Age of Reform is unlikely to have the wide appeal of books that tell people what they already know or wish to believe. During the New Deal era, it was customary for American liberals to look backward through American history and see a long straight corridor in which stood the heroes of American reform and revolt.

Richard Hofstadter (August 6, 1916 – October 24, 1970) was an American historian and public intellectual of the mid-20th century. Hofstadter was the DeWitt Clinton Professor of American History at Columbia University. Rejecting his earlier communist. Rejecting his earlier communist approach to history, in the 1950s he came closer to the concept of "consensus history", and was epitomized by some of his admirers as the "iconic historian of postwar liberal consensus.

It's a wonderful book on the history of the transformation of the US. The book itself is short and concise. As one of the reviewers commented, it is not an easy read. To be able to understand some of the contents, one will need to have some knowledge and background on US history. While it's more a book on history of US politics, one can also get a good sense of how the society has changed or evolved during the Gilded Age?

The essential read to understand the Progressive Era. Illuminating and unique perpspectives.

Great realistic view of the depression from one of America's most prominent historians. Hofstadter does an outstanding job describing the evolution of the populist to progressives culminating in the New Deal. Its a great read full of valuable information.

Had read this book 2 to 3 times before. The author's method and insights are still valid in my opinion. Valuable to assess current and recurrent themes in American politics.
