The Industrial History of the United States - Katharine Coman. This book contains an account of the industrial and economic history of the United States from the colonial period through about 1900. The author examines “the transformation of industrial institutions from indentured servants to the trade union, from the self-employed artisan to the trust, from wild-cat banking to the national bank system... It is the aim of this book to bring the essential elements of that history within the grasp of the average reader.” The book opens with a look at the discovery of the “New World” original inhabitants and early settlers, followed by a discussion of the business aspects of colonization, industrial development under British control, and industrial aspects of the Revolution. Other topics include: our nation’s beginnings, industrial consequences of the War of 1812, development of manufactures, the Civil War: economic causes and results, and much more. Numerous marginal references; and a wealth of maps, charts, statistical tables, illustrations, and vintage photographs augment the text. A bibliography and an index to names, places and subjects complete this work. (1907), 2010, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 452 pp. C5172 ISBN: 0788451723
