“[A] wonderful book, imaginatively researched and beautifully written.”—Ann Fabian, professor of American studies and history at Rutgers University

Market Sentiments is a pleasure and a profit to read. Nelson connects marginalized and trivialized products—like hair creations and charity fairs—with the most profound concerns of American culture. With a sharp eye for irony, a sophisticated theory of gender, and an impressive amount of research, Nelson opens up a new window on mid-nineteenth-century middle-class material and ideological practices.”—Laura Wexler, professor of American studies at Yale University and author of Tender Violence: Domestic Visions in an Age of U.S. Imperialism
