Published by Beacon Press
NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK, read an excerpt from Stephen Puleo's A City So Grand: The Rise of an American Metropolis, Boston 1850-1900 (http://www.beacon.org/productdetails.cfm?SKU=5043).

Once upon a time, "Boston Town" was an insulated New England township. But the community was destined for greatness. Between 1850 and 1900, Boston underwent a stunning metamorphosis to emerge as one of the world's great metropolises-one that achieved national and international prominence in politics, medicine, education, science, social activism, literature, commerce, and transportation.

Puleo chronicles this remarkable period in Boston's history, in his trademark page-turning style.
The lively stories in A City So Grand paint an extraordinary portrait of a half century of progress, leadership, and influence that turned a New England town into a world-class city, giving us the Boston we know today.

"It's been quite a while since I've read anything—fiction or nonfiction—so enthralling." —Dennis Lehane
