Inhaltsangabe: Toward a More Perfect Union uses this specific moral code of Congress as a springboard into the issues generated by the constitutional crisis that precipitated the American Revolution. Withington argues that the moral program, grounded in popular culture, worked as a political strategy to involve people emotionally in the cause, and to broaden the reach of resistance to include all classes and both genders.
Rezension: "A convincing account, writen with unusual wit and style, of the manner in which colonial American self-righteousness and self-denials contributed to a change of sensibility that prepared the way for Independence."--William & Mary Quarterly"An important and readable book by a gifted author."--Choice"Original and deeply interesting....I like this study very much. It is an important book and well-researched. It will add luster to any publisher's list."--Robert Middlekauff, University of California, Berkeley"Withington's book is imaginative and carefully argued and makes a major contribution to the ongoing debate over the meaning of American republicanism."--The Historian"This book happens to be a particularly bright and imaginative exemplar of that genre which repays a careful reading with many original and important insights into our revolutionary past."--Journal of Interdisciplinary History

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
