After the Revolution: Profiles of Early American Culture

الغلاف الأمامي
W. W. Norton & Company, 2002 - 256 من الصفحات
An entrepreneur, a writer who wanted to depict an ideal society, a dramatist who tried to reconcile high aesthetic standards and populism, and a Connecticut Yankee who ran into the contradictions of conservatism and liberalism -- each of the four men depicted in this book had a vision of what kind of society post-Revolutionary America should be. Through portraits of these bellwether figures, historian Joseph J. Ellis examines the role of culture in post-Revolutionary America, both its high expectations and its frustrations.
