Abstract (summary)
To read American bohemianism as a minor theme in the cultural history of New York City is to do a disservice to the intellectual richness of the former, a sprawling diversity of ideas stretching back more than a century and a half. Radical thought might thrive in Manhattan, but, as Mark Lause demonstrates here, its genesis can often be traced through events felt most acutely outside the city, and the influence it wields can be found even further afield.
