McShane, Clay, Tarr, Joel

SUMMARY

Clay McShane and Joel A. Tarr, prominent scholars of urban life, here explore the critical role of the horse in the growing nineteenth-century metropolis. Using diverse sources, they examine how horses were housed and fed; how workers bred, trained, marketed, and employed their four-legged assets; and how horses affected the physical form of the city. In addition to providing an insightful account of life and work in nineteenth-century urban America, The Horse in the City brings us to a richer understanding of how the animal fared in terms of both treatment and health in this unnatural and presumably uncomfortable setting. "Presents a rich and complex picture of nineteenth-century urban life. McShane and Tarr have given us a book that is simultaneously an urban social history, a social history of a technology, and an environmental history." -- Technology and Culture "Their work will no doubt encourage many scholars to reevaluate what they know about the physical formation of U.S. cities and what was going on in them." -- American Quarterly "A brilliant account of an incredibly important but understudied topic." -- American Historical Review "A fascinating story of the 'Gelded' Age." -- Journal of American HistoryMcShane, Clay is the author of 'Horse in the City Living Machines in the Nineteenth Century', published 2007 under ISBN 9780801886003 and ISBN 0801886007.
