Chapter Twelve, The Dream of the Utopians
Learn about the very human backlash of Americans to the confusing and, for many, dehumanizing events and trends which beset people in the first incarnation of the new Industrial Age. Discover how people resisted the anonymity and sterility which seemed to be the price of this degrading modernity, which seemed to require a sacrifice of the quality of their daily lives. Hear how Americans invented new ways of living and thinking, or embraced religious inspiration, to discover more meaningful paths to individual and collective identity and recover their pride and sense of self.
