Sinopsis: This book explores the rise of manufacturing through the beliefs and practices of Samuel Colt, John Fox Slater, Horatio Nelson Slater, Amos Adams Lawrence, and their families. These entrepreneurs dominated the firearms and textile industries, but their influence extended beyond their respective enterprises. From the antislavery activities and business innovations of the Slaters and Lawrence to Colt's advocacy of Empire, they represented diverse possibilities for the organization of a new industrial society. Colt envisioned a free-wheeling casino and crony capitalism, the Slaters fused small town values and a new industrial discipline, and Lawrence promoted a Protestant vision of America guided by educated urban elites.
