4.0 A Shopkeeper's Millennium: Society and Revivals in Rochester, New York, 1815-1837
Johnson contrasts a tightly-knit world of extended, kinship-based business connections, in which “ungoverned ambition was a fatal liability,” with a rapidly growing “unstable urban population.” The Second Great Awakening’s evangelism in Rochester, he says, was primarily about social control.
