Republic of Debtors PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Republic of Debtors free pdf Debt was an inescapable fact of life in early America. At the beginning of the eighteenth century, its sinfulness was preached by ministers, and the right to imprison debtors was unquestioned. By 1800, imprisonment for debt was under attack, and insolvency was no longer seen as a moral failure, merely an economic setback. In "Republic of Debtors", Bruce H. Mann illuminates this crucial transformation in early American society.
