Chronicles the demise of one Massachusetts intellectual elite, the Congregational Standing Order, and the rise of another, the Boston Brahmins. Finds behind the change the rise of a new group of wealthy urban merchants who funded Brahmin efforts to create the first secular high culture in the US, to the detriment of the orthodox ministry. Also traces the consequences of the change for the region and the country as a whole. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
