The American Bourgeoisie : Distinction and Identity in the Nineteenth Century Hardback

Edited by Julia Rosenbaum, Sven Beckert

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Cultural and Intellectual History series

Description

This volume engages a fundamental disciplinary question about this period in American history: how did the bourgeoisie consolidate their power and fashion themselves not simply as economic leaders but as cultural innovators and arbiters?

It also explains how culture helped Americans form both a sense of shared identity and a sense of difference.
