Index
"This book's persistent attention to small traders is one of its great strengths (...) Haggerty's insistence that scholars look for connections rather than presume inferiority and isolation among lesser male and female traders should inspire other to tease patterns out of these same complexities and explore the larger implications for the Atlantic world." Ellen Hartigan-O'Connor, William and Mary Quarterly
This book uses the case studies of Liverpool and Philadelphia to investigate the nature of the British-Atlantic trading community between 1760 and 1810. By using a wide definition of the term 'trader', this work stresses the role of lesser traders, including women, in the distribution of goods around the Atlantic. Through comparing and contrasting these trading communities, it highlights the different structures of the economies of these cities during this period of conflict and change. However, by using the concepts of networks of people, credit and goods, this book also demonstrates how a common business mentalité inextricably bound these trading communities together, even as Philadelphia struggled to free itself from the legacy of its colonial past.
