About the Author

Joseph A. Amato is Emeritus Professor of History and Rural and Regional Studies at Southwest Minnesota State University. He is the author of many books, including Dust: A History of the Small and Invisible (2000), On Foot: A History of Walking (2004) and Surfaces: A History (2013).


In "Everyday Life," Amato reflects on the complex and changing textures of everyday life, beginning with societies of scarcity and relative lack of change and ending with Amato s own American life of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. A work of wide-ranging erudition, it nonetheless offers food for reflection to the everyday reader today, for it lays out how life even in the very recent past differed from life in present-day societies of abundance and of seemingly unstoppable change. --Allan Megill, University of Virginia"
