Sources look at the growth of cities, the issue of child labor, and the nature of urban politics. One secondary source looks upon Progressive reforms favorably, while the other asserts that Progressive sought to impose a business or corporate model on city government. Concluding exercises have students assess statements such as "The Progressives said that they were for the people,’ yet they often did not trust the people’ that much, especially the immigrant poor of the cities."
