GAPE Bibliography Project, Phase 1: Exam Reading Lists

Hello all,

As part of my duties as an H-SHGAPE network editor, I'm interested in assembling a comprehensive bibliography of scholarly books and significant academic articles on the Gilded Age and Progressive Era.  This bibliography could serve as a resource for graduate students compiling exam lists, researchers looking for scholarship on some aspect of the period, or general readers interested in our field.  This is a big project and will take me a while to complete, and it will need to be updated continually with newly-published scholarship.
