The Politics of Individualism

In the fifty years following the Revolution, America's population nearly quadrupled, its boundaries expanded, industrialization took root in the Northeast, new modes of transport flourished, state banks proliferated and offered easy credit to eager entrepreneurs, and Americans found themselves in the midst of an accelerating age of individualism and self-reliance. Kohl draws on the political rhetoric found in speeches, newspapers, periodicals and pamphlets to place the Whigs and Democrats in a solid social context. He contends that the political division between these two parties reflected the division between Americans unsettled by the new individualistic social order and those whoe character allowed them to strive more confidently within it. The author brings new insight into the politics and people of Jacksonian America.
