Age of Betrayal: The Triumph of Money in America, 1865-1900 by Jack Beatty

Age of Betrayal is a brilliant reconsideration of Americas first Gilded Age, when war-born dreams of freedom and democracy died of their impossibility. Focusing on the alliance between government and railroads forged by bribes and campaign contributions, Jack Beatty details the corruption of American political culture that, in the words of Rutherford B. Hayes, transformed a government of the people, by the people, and for the people into a government by the corporations, of the corporations, and for the corporations. A passionate, gripping, scandalous and sorrowing history of the triumph of wealth over commonwealth.
