Library Co. of Phila.
by Lawrence Peskin (au).
Series: Studies in Early American Economy and Society from the Library Company of Philadelphia. By reconstructing this widespread public discussion about the nation's economic future, Peskin qualifies many of our assumptions about what Americans wanted, and what they were capable of doing in these formative years. Peskin finds deep and early aspirations for national economic independence, rooted in natural bounty and fueled by widespread expectations that the Revolution would create the conditions for becoming a productive, "manu-factoring" people.(Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2003)
