Creating a Nation of Joiners: Democracy and Civil Society in Early National Massachusetts



Creating a Nation of Joiners: Democracy and Civil Society in Early National Massachusetts By Johann N. Neem
Publisher: Harvard University Press 2008 | 270 Pages | ISBN: 0674030796 | File type: PDF | 1 mb


A powerful analysis that will reshape our understanding of the transformation of civil society in the early American republic. Neem's study is part of an emerging literature forcing a reconsideration of the classic Tocquevillean account of voluntary association and the state. I am impressed with the depth of the research, the sharpness and acuity of the interpretation, and the clarity of the writing. This is an important book.
John L. Brooke, Ohio State University

Beautifully conceived and clearly written, Creating a Nation of Joiners is a major contribution to our understanding of the early Republic. Not only does it nicely show how bitterly contested was the struggle over the creation of a civil society, but it contains the best account of the changing nature of the corporation since Oscar and Mary Handlin's Commonwealth. A superb study.
Gordon S. Wood, Brown University
