Today's Sunday "Blog" from the past is written by Judwebre from Tropics of Meta on Robert H. Wiebe's seminal work The Search for Order: 1877-1920. Like Judwebre, I also read The Search for Order while preparing for comprehensive exams. I'm glad that I did. It is still the place to start when studying the Gilded Age/Progressive Era and quite possibly the best book covering this time period.
