Mary Babson Fuhrer (MA 1994) has published A Crisis of Community: The Trials and Transformation of a New England Town, 1815-1848.
Her publisher, the University of North Carolina Press, explains, "Blending family records and a rich trove of community archives, Fuhrer examines the "age of revolutions" through the lens of a rural community that was swept into the networks of an expanding and urbanizing New England region. This finely detailed history lends new depth to our understanding of a key transformative moment in American history."
Fuhrer is a public historian specializing in the social history of New England. Her work has earned a Massachusetts History Commendation from the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities.
