The Social Logic of Past Politics (Web Resources)
Title: The Social Logic of Past Politics
Author: Donald DeBats
Abstract: Alexandria and Newport are River Cities ? one on the Potomac River opposite Washington DC and one on the Ohio River opposite Cincinnati, Ohio. This website ? and the large study on which it rests -- focuses on these two cities as they were in years just before the Civil War (Alexandria) and just after (Newport). In the nineteenth century the United States was still a rural nation, but cities were the way of the future.
