“An engaging, responsible and compelling book. It offers an excellent introduction to the epic saga of late 19th-century America and an important message for our own time.” —The San Diego Union-Tribune“Illuminated and enlivened. . . . [Beatty's] ability to hot-wire our history to the here and now is what gives Age of Betrayal its distinctive bite.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review“Readers will immediately by impressed by the range of subject matter he can handle, from political, economic, and constitutional history to the history of labor, social movements and time. . . . Absorbing in its detail and refreshingly uncompromising in its perspective.” —The Boston Globe.“A shocking, heart-breaking account of corruption and just plain meanness.” —The Providence Journal
