Founding mothers & fathers : gendered power and the forming of American society by Mary Beth Norton( Book )
16 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,348 libraries worldwide
Focusing on the first half-century of English settlement - approximately 1620 to 1670 - Mary Beth Norton looks not only at what colonists actually did but also at the philosophical basis for what they thought they were doing. She weaves theory and reality into a tapestry that reveals colonial life as more varied than we have supposed. She draws our attention to all early dysfunctional family extending over several generations and colonies. The basic worldview of this early period, Norton demonstrates, envisaged family, society, and state as similar institutions. She shows us how, because of that familial analogy, women who wielded power in the household could also wield surprising authority outside the home. We see, for example, Mistress Margaret Brent given authority as attorney for Lord Baltimore, Maryland's Proprietor, and Mistress Anne Hutchinson, who sought and assumed religious authority, causing the greatest political crisis in Massachusetts Bay

Separated by their sex : women in public and private in the colonial Atlantic world by Mary Beth Norton( Book )
13 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 524 libraries worldwide
Spanning the period between the English Civil War in the 1640s through to the dawn of the American Revolutionary period, this work on gender identity and politics explores the development of the private sphere as an external and internalized tool that removed women from public political discourse. The work examines contemporary popular media as a polarizing force that drove women from a relatively egalitarian footing in political intellectual life to a new role indoors that would prevail in the external discourse and internal dialogues of the nation for centuries to come. Norton is a professor of history at Cornell University

New men : manliness in early America by Thomas A Foster( Book )

In 1782, J. Hector St. John de Crèvecoeur wrote, "What then, is the American, this new man? He is an American, who, leaving behind him all his ancient prejudices and manners, receives new ones from the new mode of life he has embraced." In casting aside their European mores, these pioneers, de Crèvecoeur implied, were the very embodiment of a new culture, society, economy, and political system. But to what extent did manliness shape early America's character and institutions? And what roles did race, ethnicity, and class play in forming masculinity?. Thomas A. Foster and his contributors grapp
