About this product
- DescriptionThis book argues that schools were a driving force in the formation of social, political, and financial capital during the market revolution and capitalist transition of the early republican era. Grounded in an intensive study of schooling in the Genesee Valley region of upstate New York, it traces early sources of funding and support for education (including common schools and various forms of higher schooling) to their roots in different social and ecomic networks and trade and credit relations. It then interprets that story in the context of other major developments in early American social, political, and ecomic history, such as the shift from agricultural to n-agricultural production, the integration of rural ecomies into translocal capitalist markets, the organization of the Second Great Awakening, the transformation of patriarchy, the expansion of white male suffrage, the emergence of the Secondary American Party System, and the formation of the modern liberal state.
