In this first general history of the Eiffel Tower in English, ì Jill Jonnes-acclaimed author of Conquering Gotham-offers ì an eye-opening look not only at the construction of one of the ì modern world's most iconic structures, but also the epochal event ì that surrounded its arrival as a wonder of the world. In this ì marvelously entertaining portrait of Belle Époque France, fear ì and loathing over Eiffel's brash design share the spotlight with ì the celebrities that made the 1889 Exposition Universelle an ì event to remember-including Buffalo Bill and his sharpshooter ì Annie Oakley, Thomas Edison, and artists Whistler, Gauguin, and ì van Gogh. Eiffel's Tower is a richly textured portrait of an era ì at the dawn of modernity, reveling in the limitless promise of ì the future.
