Toward a New Society: American Thought and Culture, 1800-1830

by Jean V. Matthews

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Thoughtful, erudite essays examine the often opposing trends that comprised the economic, political, cultural, and social development of our young nation during this vital 30-year period that climaxed with Jacksonian liberalism and its espousal of the ``natural man.'' Matthews (history, Univ. of Western Ontario) thoroughly documents her presentations with a notes and references section as well as a bibliographic essay. Academic and large libraries serving local colleges will welcome this coverage of an often-neglected period in American intellectual history. (Index not seen.)-- Alice Cronin, Ocean Cty. Lib. System, N.J.
