Andrew Carnegie: Robber Baron as American Hero
James Thomas Baker, James T. BakerISBN: 015500011X;
Andrew Carnegie, a destitute immigrant who became the richest man of his time, helped create "the American mind" by personifying the rags-to-riches story that was the American ideal in the early twentieth century. In this fourth volume of the CREATORS OFTHE AMERICAN MIND series, James T. Baker writes a compelling biography that explores how and why Andrew Carnegie continues to exert such a profound influence over the American mind. Like the other volumes in this series, this text includes selections from the subject's contemporaries, scholarly analyses of the subject's life and influence, and comparisons to modern individuals who embody the traits of the subject covered in the text.
