Surveyors of Customs explores literature's insights into how America--its soft capitalism, its democratized inequality, its Americanization of power--ticks. Joel Pfister argues that writers from Benjamin Franklin to Louise Erdrich can be read as critical surveyors of customs, culture, hegemony, capitalism's emotional logic, and much else.
