About this title

Synopsis:

In Man and Mission: E. B. Gaston and the Origins of the Fairhope Single Tax Colony, historian Paul Gaston relates his grandfather's 1864 founding of the utopian community of Fairhope, Alabama. The twenty-eight "Fairhopers" hoped to realize an "equality of opportunity, the full reward of individual efforts, and the benefits of co-operation in matters of general concern," at a time when the economic system of the United State was ravaged by monopoly capitalism. Using family and public records, Man and Mission gives an intimate view of a vibrant moment in the history of Gilded Age America.
