Description : Excerpt from Men of Our Day, or Biographical Sketches of Patriots, Orators, Statesmen, Generals, Reformers, Financiers and Merchants, Now on the Stage of Action: Including Those Who in Military, Political, Business and Social Life, Are the Prominent Leaders of the Time in This Country Nothing, says a recent epigrammatic writer, suc ceeds like success. We may add, nothing interests the public like the history of success. Let a man be poor, obscure, and undistinguished by any remarkable or con Spicuous deeds, and though he had the wisdom of Solo mon, the meekness Cf Moses, the patience of Job, or the faith of Abraham, yet there would be little or no inter est felt in his history. An humble and outwardly quiet life may have its record of heart struggles, its days of sunshine and shadow, its nights of wearying anxiety and mental disquiet, which are full of interest to beings of higher intelligence than ours, and form to the psycho logist a curious study; but for the great mass of man kind they possess no charm.

Description : Canvasing the culture, Banta shows how the cause of efficiency was taken up in narratives, of every sort - in mail-order catalogs, popular romances, newspaper stories, and personal testimonials "from below," as well as in the canonical works of writers from Henry Adams and William James, to Sinclair Lewis, Nathanael West, and William Faulkner. The strategies of impassioned theorists and hands-on practitioners affected the kinds-of narratives produced in the controversy over the pros and cons of the management culture; they bear an eerie resemblance to the means by which we today, storytellers all, keep trying to make sense of our own chaotic times. This interdisciplinary work charts the development of a managerial culture from its start in the steel mills of Pennsylvania through its spread across the American experience in an interlocking series of social systems and everyday practices

Description : A popular genre from colonial times to 1900, the conduct book provides the youthful reader with authoritative guidance about right moral, religious, and gender role behavior. With the aim of teaching the young what they need to know--and believe--about society's expectations for the ideal young man and woman, the genre codified "true" American manhood and womanhood. This guide provides an analytic and historical overview of the conduct book and its cultural work in America. With an annotated bibliography of over 500 books, it provides easy and direct access to conduct books for adults of each sex and for children.
