The Refinement of America: Persons, Houses, Cities

by Richard Lyman Bushman

About this title: How did the parlor, parasol, piano lesson, and white-glove style of life and manners come to a nation whose inhabitants, save for the very few families of wealth, lived the simplest of pioneer lives? Bushman's answer: a long-held belief, so crucial to the country's politics, in the inalienable right of every American to membership in the middle class. 130 photographs.
