Farewell to the 'Period Party': Political Economy in Nineteenth-Century America

John, Richard R.

This article surveys recent scholarship on the history of political economy in the United States. Its focus is on work published since the mid-1990s on the long nineteenth century that opened with the adoption of the federal Constitution and closed with World War I. In no sense is it intended to be comprehensive; rather, it seeks merely to highlight some of the most important recent trends.
