Promotional Information

The Democratic Dilemma seeks to explain Vermonters' extraordinary faith and idealism.


"...Offers a solid analysis of early nineteenth-century Vermont as it adjusted to rapid social and economic change, and faced conflicts between democratic ideology and the inequalities produced by a competitive economy...Roth adds an important dimension to our understanding of the New England frontier, and the manner in which New Englanders bridged post-Revolutionary conflicts between democratic equality and economic competition." Jeffrey P. Brown, the Historian
