About this title


Most studies of eighteenth-century community life in America have focused on New England, and in many respects the New England town has become a model for our understanding of communities throughout the United States during this period. In this study of a mid-Atlantic town, the author describes a very different way of organizing society, indicating that the New England model may prove atypical. In addition, her analysis suggests the origins of twentieth-century social patterns in eighteenth-century life.


"A pioneering American community study. . . . [It] provides a vivid sense of the lives of its people. Beyond the methodological creativity and its conceptual coherence, it touches always the pulse of daily dilemmas and desires."--American Historical Review
