About the Author

Charles W. Calhoun is professor of history at East Carolina University and author of the biography Benjamin Harrison and, most recently, Conceiving a New Republic: The Republican Party and the Southern Question, 1869-1900.


A masterwork of mature scholarship--beautifully written, carefully researched, and finely argued. Calhoun evocatively locates the fascinating campaign of 1888 in both the context of Gilded Age society and the disappointing reality of our contemporary politics.--Michael McGerr, author of A Fierce Discontent: The Rise and Fall of the Progressive Movement in America, 1870-1920This contest and its stunning outcome have awaited a historian of Charles W. Calhoun's stature to do it justice. This election did indeed matter greatly, and in the capable hands of Calhoun, its significance is now made clear.--John M. McCardell Jr., author of The Idea of a Southern Nation
First-rate political history. Expertly written by a leading Gilded Age authority ... this accessible volume ... offers more than historical narrative and analysis. . . . Calhoun has made a vital contribution to the understanding of the Gilded Age.--Journal of the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era A finely crafted examination of one of the late nineteenth century's most underappreciated campaigns. . . . The author makes a strong argument that the Republican Benjamin Harrison's campaign pointed the way toward GOP dominance of American politics in the early twentieth century.--Journal of American HistoryA satisfying fix for political junkies and a worthwhile history lesson for anyone interested in that least studied American era, the Gilded Age.--Wall Street Journal
