Daniel Calhoun analyzes and defines the changing attitudes, values, and style of life of men in the major professions during a transitional period in American history. Carefully examining original sources, including personal retrospective accounts of the lives and work of men in medicine, law, and the ministry, he shows how these men reconciled their ethical values and professional commitments with an evolving social structure and concludes that, by the middle of the nineteenth century, these men had already played a key role in helping to establish the singular character and tempo of modern American society.
