Examines the history of this seaside resort city to explore the larger dynamics of Progressivism, urban politics, commercial leisure, and sabbatarianism. . . . A solid local history and more. Its integration of local and national issues raises questions that reverberate far beyond Atlantic City.
--Journal of American History
Tracing the evolution of Atlantic City from a miserable hamlet of fishermen's huts in 1854 to the nation's premier seaside resort in 1910, The Social Anxieties of Progressive Reform chronicles a bizarre political conflict that reaches to the very heart of Progressivism.
