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 ...show moren, & 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.
