1888. Andrew Carnegie's life was a true rags-to-riches story. Born to a poor Scottish family that immigrated to the United States, Carnegie became a powerful businessman and a leading force in the American steel industry. Today, he is remembered as an industrialist, millionaire, and philanthropist. Carnegie believed that the wealthy had an obligation to give back to society, so he donated much of his fortune to causes like education and peace. His writings, including numerous books and some 80 articles, evidence his awareness of the problems created by the demands and rewards of a society undergoing industrialization. Contents: The Republic; The American People; Cities and Towns; Conditions of Life; Occupations; Education; Religion; Pauperism and Crime; Agriculture; Manufactures; Mining; Trade and Commerce; Railways and Waterways; Art and Music; Literature; The Federal Constellation; Foreign Affairs; The Government's Nonpolitical Work; The National Balance Sheet; and General Reflections.
