"A penetrating study of Bennington, Vermont, that depicts American political identity during the early republic as characterized as much by intraregional as by interregional conflicts... An important contribution to the study of American political life that presents the travails of two generations of Americans who sought to restore a national sense of community and, by doing so, reinvented and reinvigorated the nation's political and social institutions." -- History
In this lively study, Robert E. Shalhope supplies a fascinating microcosmic view of the rise and triumph of liberal individualism in America and explores its impact on political culture.
