Maury Klein is Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Rhode Island and the author of many books, including The Power Makers.
"Mr. Klein has written thoroughly researched and scrupulously objective biographies of the previously much maligned Jay Gould and E.H. Harriman, remaking their public images by presenting them in full. Now he has published the third and final volume of his magisterial history of the Union Pacific railroad, taking the company from 1969 to the present day." - Wall Street Journal
