Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Argues that New England humor has been neglected in favor of the earthier frontier humor of early America, that it embodied the tension between values of the old and new worlds, and that it played an important role in giving substance to the national identity promised by the struggle for independence. Highlights the cartoon, literary, and stage career of the rustic Yankee caricature, Brother Jonathan, who evolved into Uncle Sam. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
