Editorial Reviews


"[A rich, well-researched book . . . Here is laudable interdisciplinary work, of equal interest to students of history, literature, or architecture."--Choice

"[This study calls much needed attention to the ways that post-Revolutionary Americans tried to reconcile the seemingly contradictory ideas of preservation and development, past and future, conservation and progressivism, and local and national. Remodeling the Nation is sure to prompt scholars from many disciplines to reconsider the ways that Americans manipulated space to negotiate identity in nineteenth-century society."--Virginia Quarterly Review


"Showing how views of domestic architecture reflect shifting conceptions of American identity, Faherty adds a fascinating chapter to American cultural and intellectual history. Expertly navigating between architecture, literature, and art, Faherty provides a broadly interdisciplinary study that illuminates each of these fields and creates a sweeping panorama of American culture."

Interesting read. I haven't been a student for many years so it took a few pages to get back into the text book style of writing. The connection between common language and physical surrounding is creative and lead to an enjoyable read.
