McKinley governed in a time of extreme change in U.S. history. As Congressman, Governor, and President, McKinley embraced adaptation and modernization and governed with a style based on his traditional experiences, knowledge and character. In the 1890s, America prospered at home and abroad, largely because of the policies of McKinley.

President McKinley recognized transformations taking place throughout the world and the creation of new global relationships. In the wake of globalization as we know it, McKinley held on to the traditional American values of hard-work, honesty, thrift, frugality, humanity and self-maintenance. This book examines the life and presidency of William McKinley, as well as his role as the first modern President.
