Charleston and the Emergence of Middle-Class Culture in the Revolutionary Era

I'm delighted to announce that my book, Charleston and the Emergence of Middle-Class Culture in the Revolutionary Era will be forthcoming from University of Georgia Press on October 10.  Readers of this list might be particularly interested in the material on a forgotten post-Revolutionary economic boom that shaped attitudes towards trade in Charleston.  More information is available here: http://www.ugapress.org/index.php/books/charleston_and_emergence/.

 

Best,
