Summary

Martineau's classic narrative of her travels in Jacksonian America has long been unavailable. An abridged version of the original two-volume edition published in 1838, this new edition preserves Martineau's straight reporting on slavery and other current topics of the day, as well as her shrewd insights on women's place in society and her sharp observations and memorable vignettes of famous people (e.g. John Calhoun). With a new introduction and an expanded index.
