Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the research design of the study. It first discusses the concept of possessive individualism, an ideology that is sustained and brought into being by techniques which are considered the technologies of the self. The chapter then addresses the issue of freedom and poverty, before discussing the three materials that make the case for the power of ideology and those who modified it. These are the landscapes, printing, and ceramics. The chapter also takes a look at the Maryland Gazette and explains the portrayal of Annapolis as a capital city.
