Product description


"A superb piece of historical writing. Authoritative, resonant, and deftly written, it is a model for what good cultural history should be." - Jim Cullen, author of The American Dream: A Short History of an Idea That Shaped a Nation; "An intriguing piece of narrative history. Chapin's analysis of the power dynamics between the Kane and Fox families provides a fascinating glimpse into the intimate workings of class and gender in the antebellum period." - Benjamin Reiss, author of The Showman and the Slave: Race, Death, and Memory in Barnum's America"
