about

By tracing the business strategies of several hundred house builders through the city's rapid growth during the decades after American independence, Rilling (history, State U. of New York- Stony Brook) illuminates the complex process by which thousands of row houses were constructed and sold, and shows how craftsmen were at the center of the physical and economic expansion. The builders include traditional craft workers, emerging entrepreneurs, and hustling speculators. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
