Dr. Frank Bryan will begin by defending an assertion: Vermont is unique, profoundly unique, in its status as a civil society.  Given this, he will seek to explore one causal sequence of variables that might explain why this is so. In so doing, he will present some new evidence of his own and comment on some of the literature that has proffered explanations of Vermont’s socio/political development such as Paul Searls’s impressive new interpretation of Vermont history, Two Vermonts: Geography and Identity, 1865–1910 (2006). Dr. Bryan will end the seminar with a brief normative recommendation.
