   schema:reviewBody ""Each Mind a Kingdom offers the first in-depth history of the enormously popular turn-of-the-century New Thought movement. Most historians have characterized New Thought as the popular ideology of twentieth-century capitalism, but this account reanimates the movement's complex early history." "This revisionist history demonstrates the centrality of New Thought to the social and political transformations that reshaped American culture at the turn of the century. It explains how a spiritual discourse that combined rigid Victorian gender norms, middle-class reformism, race ideology, and proto-psychology gave rise to wildly popular twentieth-century cults of success. In so doing, it suggests new ways of interpreting the self-help, New Age movements of our own fin de siecle."--Jacket." ;
