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
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.
