Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

William Otter's autobiography, first published in 1835, provides a rare and fascinating counterpoint to romantic notions of virtuous, respectable craftsmen in the early republic. His Life and Adventures offers an inside account of the brawling racism common in the early nineteenth century and sharply details the rowdy male subculture of the times.

Born in England and conscripted into the British Navy during the Napoleonic wars, Big Bill Otter jumped ship and came to New York City in 1801. He apprenticed as a plasterer and joined an urban gang; later he was a master plasterer, tavernkeeper, slavecatcher, "Jackson man," bigot, town bully, notorious practical joker, borderline psychopath, mayoral candidate, and all-round "jolly fellow." History of My Own Times is one of the few first-person accounts of a rural artisan in pre-genteel America. The book depicts the ambiguities of race relations in the early nineteenth century, sheds light on its definition of manhood, and conveys a sense of humor very different from today's.

Richard B. Stott's introduction and commentary place Otter in the context of his times and explore the significance of his autobiography in understanding the social and cultural history of the early American republic.
