M OST OF THE WORKS USED ARE, OF COURSE, CITED IN the footnotes, and it would be redundant merely to list them here. Instead, I have placed some of the more important works and manuscript collections within broad groupings, which will allow those who wish further reading to proceed from there. With the exception of a few important pieces, contemporary magazine articles are not mentioned.
There are many general books on the Progressive Period, and the reader is referred especially to Richard Hofstadter, The Age of Reform ( New York: Knopf, 1955); Eric Goldman, Rendezvous with Destiny ( New York: Vintage, 1960 rev. ed.); and Samuel Hays, The Response to Industrialism, 1885-1914 ( Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1957). Taken together, George Mowry, The Era of Theodore Roosevelt ( New York: Harpler & Row, 1958) and Arthur S. Link, Woodrow Wilson and the Progressive Era ( New York: Harper & Row, 1954) form an unusually fine narrative of the years before the war. At present, there is no book that adequately treats the war; Robert Wiebe, however, does an excellent job in placing the war experience in the perspective of industrialization in The Search for Order, 1877-1920 ( New York: Hill & Wang, 1967). For general narratives of labor and economic history, see Foster Rhea Dulles, Labor in America ( New York: Crowell, 1960 rev. ed.) and Harold Faulkner, American Economic History ( New York: Harper & Bros., 1924).
