The subtitle of this book explains what it is about, ?Varieties of American Experience 1865-1915?. This is a ?cultural history?, though as Jones points out in his preface, he takes great pains not to define ?culture?. Age of Energy is organized around the thesis (or theme) that the conclusion of the Civil War unleashed a hurricane of American energy upon the physical/psychic/artistic landscape of America. It was a hurricane that had its roots in the industrial revolution and the railroads.
