Adapting to Factory and City

Illustrations from the Industrialization and Urbanization of Paterson, New Jersey

Abstract

Understanding the cultural history of the United States requires understanding industrialization and urbanization, two processes central to the nation’s development. This chapter presents an approach to the investigation of these two phenomena and their impact on the evolution of American culture in the nineteenth century. Specifically, the model deals with the adaptive choices made by individuals, households, and larger social groups in response to an industrializing and urbanizing environment, and the extent and ways economic status influenced these choices.
