Riassunto: Two Vermonts establishes a little-known fact about Vermont: that the state's fascination with tourism as a savior for a suffering economy is more than a century old, and that this interest in tourism has always been dogged by controversy. Through this lens, the book is poised to take its place as the standard work on Vermont in the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era. Searls examines the origins of Vermont's contemporary identity and some reasons why that identity (“Who is a Vermonter?”) is to this day so hotly contested.

Searls divides nineteenth-century Vermonters into conceptually “uphill,” or rural/parochial, and “downhill,” or urban/cosmopolitan, elements. These two groups, he says, negotiated modernity in distinct and contrary ways. The dissonance between their opposing tactical approaches to progress and change belied the pastoral ideal that contemporary urban Americans had come to associate with the romantic notion of “Vermont.” Downhill Vermonters, espousing a vision of a mutually reinforcing relationship between tradition and progress, unilaterally endeavored to foster the pastoral ideal as a means of stimulating economic development. The hostile uphill resistance to this strategy engendered intense social conflict over issues including education, religion, and prohibition in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The story of Vermont's vigorous nineteenth-century quest for a unified identity bears witness to the stirring and convoluted forging of today's “Vermont.”

Searls's engaging exploration of this period of Vermont's history advances our understanding of the political, economic, and cultural transformation of all of rural America as industrial capitalism and modernity revolutionized the United States between 1865 and 1910. By the late Progressive Era, Vermont's reputation was rooted in the national yearning to keep society civil, personal, and meaningful in a world growing more informal, bureaucratic, and difficult to navigate. The fundamental ideological differences among Vermont communities are indicative of how elusive and frustrating efforts to balance progress and tradition were in the context of effectively negotiating capitalist transformation in contemporary America.

About the Author: PAUL M. SEARLS is a lecturer in the Department of History at the University of Vermont, where he specializes in American and Vermont history. He contributed to The Vermont Encyclopedia (UPNE, 2003).

Descrizione libro niversity of Vermont Press / University Press of New England, 2006. Softcover. Condizione libro: New. 272 pages. Softcover. New book. VERMONT. A piercing new look at nineteenth-century Vermont politics and society, and the evolution of a people. Two Vermonts establishes a little-known fact about Vermont: that the state's fascination with tourism as a savior for a suffering economy is more than a century old, and that this interest in tourism has always been dogged by controversy.

The fundamental ideological differences among Vermont communities are indicative of how elusive and frustrating efforts to balance progress and tradition were in the context of effectively negotiating capitalist transformation in contemporary America. "It offers a fresh perspective on the unacknowledged cultural conflict in Vermont history."ÑMichael Sherman, Vermont History "In his deep analysis of the struggle in Vermont in the decades following the Civil War between the forces of progressive modernity and those resistant to change, in Two Vermonts: Geography and Identity, 1865-1910, Paul M. Searls offers a framework to examine similar conflicts in world view and public policy throughout the United States." ÑH. Nicholas Muller III, former Dean, University of Vermont "A rich portrait of Gilded Age and Progressive Era Vermont that illuminates the cultural and political divisions between 'uphill' farmers wedded to tradition, and 'downhill' villagers and urbanites striving for reform. Indispensible for understanding how Vermont came to define itself and to be seen by others as the special place that it is."ÑHal S. Barron, author of Those Who Stayed Behind: Rural Society in Nineteenth-Century New England The Table of Contents of this book is as follows: Acknowledgments ¥ Introduction ¥ Decline or Stability? Vermont in the Gilded Age ¥ Defining the Boundaries of the Community of Vermonters ¥ The Fractured Community on the Eve of the "New Vermont" ¥ The Birth of the "New Vermont" ¥ The "Vermont Idea" and Social Conflict at the Turn of the Century ¥ The Failure of the "New Vermont" ¥ Conclusion ¥ Appendix: List of Governors ¥ Notes ¥ Bibliography ¥ Index. "Locates convincingly where and how the who-is-a-Vermonter conversation got startedÑand, perhaps more importantly, why it matters."ÑSeven Days Paul M. Searls is a lecturer Revisiting New Eng. book.
