Title:
More Than Great White Men: A Century of Scholarship on American Social History
Authors:
Kornblith, Gary J.; Lasser, Carol
Abstract:
The article traces the evolution of American social history writings over the previous century. In his essay "The Significance of the Frontier in American History," Frederick Jackson Turner explained that the revolution in the social and economic structure of the U.S. is comparable to formation of the Constitution and declaration of independence. In 1913, Charles A. Beard wrote the essay "An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United States" wherein he argued that the writing process was driven by economic manifestation. Other works were also cited.
