Summary
This carefully documented book addresses the relationship between farmers and artisans and local merchants in the early nineteenth century middle west. It examines exchange-relations between households and merchants as being typical of household production, wherein 'surpluses' of farmers and artisans were exchanged for 'store-bought' commodities such as tea, coffee, sugar, flour, liquor, and cloth. Tensions between these groups are examined with attention to purely local trade, and the pressure exerted by urban suppliers on local merchants
