The Gilded Age is notorious as a time of rampant political corruption and heavy-handed corporate intervention in elections. It was also a time when reformers ignited a reinvention of American democracy, changing how people voted, why people voted and how government worked. Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer T.J. Stiles looks at the often-surprising battles of Theodore Roosevelt and others, revealing both the underside of their efforts and the unexpected benefits as they laid the foundations for the republic we know today.
