Success in America

A non fiction book by

A study of the concept of yeomanry at the early beginnings of the Industrial Revolution in America, 1825-1860. The yeoman image is traced out in children's literature, mechanics' publications, and Nathaniel Hawthorne's tales, revealing both the attempt to adapt an agrarian image to a rapidly urbanizing and industrializing nation, as well as the attempt to defend this image of middle-class, rural success against the Hamiltonian vision of increasing wealth, manufacturing, and trade.
