Civilizing the Machine - 99 edition

Civilizing the Machine (ISBN10: 0809016206; ISBN13: 9780809016204)
ISBN13: 978-0809016204
ISBN10: 0809016206

Summary: A major theme of American history has always been the desire to achieve a genuinely republican way of life that values liberty, order, & virtue. In Civilizing the Machine, John F. Kasson asks how new technologies have affected this drive for a republican civilization - & the question is as vital now as ever. Civilizing the Machine was an innovative & compelling work when it first appeared two decades ago: Kasson's analysis of the technical developments in transportation, communicatio
n, & manufacture from the Revolution to the end of the nineteenth century showed how technologies were dealt with in sources as diverse as the debates of Hamilton & Jefferson; the factories of Lowell, Massachusetts; the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson: the prints of Currier & Ives; & the utopian & dystopian novels of Howells & Twain. His profound, wide-ranging inquiry into this central issue in American history is now available again with a new Introduction by the author.
