"A pioneering account of mid-Atlantic folk architecture and of the nineteenth-century transformation of traditional agriculture. . . . A major study of American vernacular architecture."--Dell Upton, University of California, Berkeley "Bernard L. Herman has provided us with a model study in the interdisciplinary interpretation of a common landscape."--Robert Blair St. George, Journal of American Folklore "An impressive study that adds an important dimension to our understanding of the built environment."--Clifford E. Clark Jr., American Historical Review "A wide range of reader expectations will be met by this book. Herman provides a focused community study as well as an interpretation of vernacular architecture in the Mid-Atlantic region."--John Michael Vlach, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians "Scholars will be impressed by Herman's ability to marshal different kinds of evidence to buttress his contention that architecture reveals not just how people materially ordered their lives but helped 'to create and maintain order, to project images of self and community, and to control meaning in social discourse.'"--Choice The Author: Bernard L. Herman teaches at the University of Delaware, where is a professor of art history and senior research fellow at the Center for Historic Architecture and Design. Among his many publications are Everyday Architecture of the Mid-Atlantic: Looking at Buildings and Landscapes (co-author with Gabrielle M. Lanier) and Historical Architectural and the Study of American Culture (co-editor with Lu Ann De Cunzo).

Architecture And Town Planning In Colonial North America

Incorporating more than 3,000 illustrations, Kornwolf's work conveys the full range of the colonial encounter with the continent's geography, from the high forms of architecture through formal landscape design and town planning. From these pages emerge the fine arts of environmental design, an understanding of the political and economic events that helped to determine settlement in North America, an appreciation of the various architectural and landscape forms that the settlers created, and an awareness of the diversity of the continent's geography and its peoples. Considering the humblest buildings along with the mansions of the wealthy and powerful, public buildings, forts, and churches, Kornwolf captures the true dynamism and diversity of colonial communities - their rivalries and frictions, their outlooks and attitudes - as they extended their hold on the land.

In Separated by Their Sex, Mary Beth Norton offers a bold genealogy that shows how gender came to determine the right of access to the Anglo-American public sphere by the middle of the eighteenth century. Earlier, high-status men and women alike had been recognized as appropriate political actors, as exemplified during and after Bacon’s Rebellion by the actions of—and reactions to—Lady Frances Berkeley, wife of Virginia’s governor. By contrast, when the first ordinary English women to claim a political voice directed group petitions to Parliament during the Civil War of the 1640s, men relentlessly criticized and parodied their efforts. Even so, as late as 1690, Anglo-American women’s political interests and opinions were publicly acknowledged. Norton traces the profound shift in attitudes toward women’s participation in public affairs to the age’s cultural arbiters, including John Dunton, editor of the Athenian Mercury, a popular 1690s periodical that promoted women’s links to husband, family, and household. Fittingly, Dunton was the first author known to apply the word "private" to women and their domestic lives. Subsequently, the immensely influential authors Richard Steele and Joseph Addison (in the Tatler and the Spectator) advanced the notion that women’s participation in politics—even in political dialogues—was absurd. They and many imitators on both sides of the Atlantic argued that women should confine themselves to home and family, a position that American women themselves had adopted by the 1760s. Colonial women incorporated the novel ideas into their self-conceptions; during such "private" activities as sitting around a table drinking tea, they worked to define their own lives. On the cusp of the American Revolution, Norton concludes, a newly gendered public-private division was firmly in place.

The latest volume in the Society of Architectural Historians' prestigious Buildings of the United States series, Buildings of Delaware is the first book to document the state's architectural history from all periods. Extensively illustrated with photographs and maps, and supplemented by a glossary and bibliography, the volume covers buildings of many styles, types, and materials, from grand mansions to vernacular structures, and from urban to rural settings. The noted architectural historian W. Barksdale Maynard spent much of 2002 through 2004 canvassing the rich cultural heritage of the state and investigating its relationship to the built environment--from an ancient Dutch dyke of 1660 to a cutting-edge cable-stay bridge recently completed, from colonial smokehouses in the countryside of Kent County to a rare, intact, International Style 1940s elementary school in the city of Wilmington. Among the architectural forms discussed are industrial and agricultural buildings and structures that characterize the state's rivers, canals, and shoreline, from gristmills to bridges and lighthouses. Major cities such as Newark and Wilmington are considered at length, with entries on homes, churches, schools, and government buildings, and the state's natural landscape, parks, and such renowned gardens as Winterthur are also described. Buildings of Delaware will provide scholars with valuable information on the architecture of the state, and will spark the imagination of general readers and local historians as well.

The Pre Industrial Consumer In England And America

This book is a comprehensive study of English and American consumers and consumption before industrialization and mass urbanization. Shammas examines the changes in what rural households bought on the market and what they produced themselves. She charts the incredible growth in what contemporaries called groceries--tobacco, suger, and caffeine drinks--and in semi-durables--lighter textiles, pottery, glassware, and paper products--and discusses the effects of this growth on diet and domestic environment. She also considers the process whereby the new goods got distributed. The sudden proliferation of shops and their relationship to market towns and peddling is also treated in depth. The comparison between England and America is of particular interest because the two were inextricably linked by trade and culture, yet their material situation, including land availability, population density, social structure, and natural resources differed greatly. Current notions about "consumer revolutions" and "consumer societies" are challenged and the author offers an alternative framework for evaluating changes in consumption patterns over time.
