Civic wars : democracy and public life in the American city during the nineteenth century by Mary P Ryan( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quite unexpectedly, she found not harmonious communities but nearly incessant civic conflict which, she argues, erupted into full-scale municipal warfare even before the onset of the War between the States. Locating her study in New York, New Orleans, and San Francisco, Ryan analyzes these conflicts on spatial, ceremonial, and political planes. The story begins in 1825 with an account of how the residents of antebellum cities created a democratic political culture out of multifarious differences. It quickly turns to the trials, failures, and reversals of the democratic experiment that characterized the 1850s and 1860s. When the Civil War ended in 1865, Ryan demonstrates, the people of these cities recast their differences as bolder division, especially those of race and gender, and sometimes class as well
Mysteries of sex : tracing women and men through American history by Mary P Ryan( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a sweeping synthesis of American history, Mary Ryan demonstrates how the meaning of male and female has evolved, changed, and varied over a span of 500 years and across major social and ethnic boundaries. She traces how, at select moments in history, perceptions of sex difference were translated into complex and mutable patterns for differentiating women and men. How those distinctions were drawn and redrawn affected the course of American history more generally. Ryan recounts the construction of a modern gender regime that sharply separated male from female and created modes of exclusion and inequity

The collection adopts
