Summary:
"The main body of this work explores the heritage of republican virtue upon which the nascent capitalism of the 1790's had a tremendous impact. It is not a critique of capitalism's worth, value, or benetit. It does however, inquire as to whether those advocates of capitalism, in the late eighteenth-century honored or dishonored their republican heritage."--Foreword [p. xiv].
