Berkeley, Calif: University of California Press, c. org/ark:/13030/ft758007r3/. Mining and Economic Development in Gold Rush California. In January 1848, in California, one of the most remote and primitive of all North American frontiers, James Marshall noticed a glimmer in the bottom of a millrace, and changed the history of the world. In the weeks, months, and years following Marshall's fateful gold discovery, "the world rushed in" on California.

During the California Gold Rush, gold-seekers known as "Forty-Niners" retrieved this gold, at first using simple techniques, and then developing more sophisticated techniques, which spread around the world.

A golden state by James J. Orsi, Marlene Smith-Baranzini, June 1, 1999, University of California Press .

by James J. Published June 1, 1999 by University of California Press.

California's storied Gold Rush triggered momentous changes not only for the state, but also for the nation and the world. The economic impact of that epoch-making event is the focus of the second volume of the California History Sesquicentennial Series. The chapter contributors offer a range of perspectives, including commentaries that reflect the new scholarship of environmental and resource history. Together, the essays and more than 90 illustrations show how the Gold Rush precipitated a veritable economic revolution whose effects continue to this day.Among the topics given a fresh interpretation are the relationship between technology and society; the environmental impact from mining and the sudden increase in California's population; the influence of the Gold Rush on agriculture, manufacturing, banking, and transportation; and its impact on the peoples and economies of Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The popular image of the independent prospector is also examined anew, as is the role of different groups of industrial workers, including Chinese, Mexicans, and women.The Gold Rush was a multiplier, an event that accelerated a chain of interrelated consequences that in turn accelerated economic growth. But it also touched a deep-seated nerve in the human psyche and unleashed economic forces, for good or ill, that transformed California forever into a Golden State.
Reviews:
  • Karg
Clear, concise and NOT one-sided. Rawls and his many contributors have covered the history of the Gold Rush in a fair manner. I am still re-reading portions of the book to comprehend the sheer audacity and courage of the people who 'made' California!
  • zzzachibis
In line with much of the new non-fiction surveys and studies, the book, in short essays gives the picture on much information that I have not seen before on the Gold Rush and the aftermath. In particular it gives a reader a chance to compare the Internet investment frenzy with the Gold Mine stocks frenzy in the 1860s & 70s.
The information is concise and beautifully and fascinatingly written.
