About this item

Citing the modern perception of nineteenth-century, money-dominated, Gilded Age politics as a time of presidential nominations decided in back rooms by political bosses, Haynes debunks this impression and presents the reality: with the exception of Ulysses Grant, presidential nominees generally won the nominations despite the opposition of political bosses of their respective parties in a time that had no debates or primaries and with only a few exceptions no active campaigning by potential nominees. Seven chapters and conclusion are: 1876: centennial showdown; 1880: all generals to the front; 1884: Democrats back in charge; 1888: Harrison vs. Cleveland—round one; 1892: Harrison vs. Cleveland--rematch; 1896: McKinley vs. Bryan--round one; 1900: McKinley vs. Bryan--rematch.
