Larson's history of public works 'brings the state back in,' or, perhaps more accurately, enables us to. .Larson has read deeply in original sources. He is as familiar with the daily debates in the . Congress from around 1790 to 1860 as anybody I have ever read.

Larson has read deeply in original sources.

Larson's long-awaited study of the crusade for internal improvement in the early American republic makes a major contribution to our understanding of the values that shaped the founders' bold experiment in republican governance. Elegantly crafted and well written, it tells its story with energy and verve.

Larson laments that the latter group usually won the congressional battles in the early 1800s and prevented the national planning of America’s transportation network. The states then began building their own canals

Larson laments that the latter group usually won the congressional battles in the early 1800s and prevented the national planning of America’s transportation network. The states then began building their own canals. Much of this state-directed construction, Larson concedes, was a failure, but he still prefers state planning to private enterprise

This book traces the central issue on which early Americans pinned their hopes for .

When the people of British North America threw off their colonial bonds, they sought more than freedom from bad government: most of the founding generation also desired the freedom to create and enjoy good, popular, responsive government. This book traces the central issue on which early Americans pinned their hopes for positive government action--internal improvement. The nation's early republican governments undertook a wide range of internal improvement projects meant to assure Americans' security, prosperity, and enlightenment--from the building of roads, canals, and bridges to the establishment of universities and libraries. But competitive struggles eventually undermined the interstate and interregional cooperation required, and the public soured on the internal improvement movement. Jacksonian politicians seized this opportunity to promote a more libertarian political philosophy in place of activist, positive republicanism. By the 1850s, the United States had turned toward a laissez-faire system of policy that, ironically, guaranteed more freedom for capitalists and entrepreneurs than ever envisioned in the founders' revolutionary republicanism.
