A tight, bright set. "...Harriet Martineau landed in New York on September 19, 1834. ... Society in America is a synthesis and an interpretation of Martineau's impressions organized in topical fashion with the subject matter divided into four major parts: politics, economy, civilization and religion. ... Miss Martineau spent six months in the South. ... An outspoken opponent of slavery, Martineau devotes much space to this question." Clark III, 205. Howes M-350.
