Inhaltsangabe: From 1789 to 1800, the Federalist and Republican parties held opposing visions for Americas future. Led by Alexander Hamilton, the Federalists sought to establish a strong central government that would lead an American commercial, financial, technological, industrial, and military revolution and thus propel the United States into the ranks of the worlds great powers. Thomas Jefferson and the Republicans feared that new wealth, power, and competing interests would corrupt the classic republic they envisioned. Instead, they extolled the romantic notion of a republic of yeoman farmers, states rights, and frontiers defended by militias and gunboats, all presided over by a weak federal government. Hamiltons vision largely prevailed in battles with the Republicans over the U.S. Bank, the role and composition of the army and navy, the Whiskey Rebellion, the French Revolution, the Indian war in the Northwest Territory, British confiscations of American ships and sailors, the Jay and Pinckney treaties, and a quasi naval war with France, among other conflicts. But, ultimately, Jefferson and his Republican Party would triumph in the 1800 election and permanently eclipse the Federalists. Historians and general readers alike will be riveted by the conflict between Federalists and Republicansa conflict that remains one of the most divisive issues in American politics today.
Rezension: "William Nester's "The Hamiltonian Vision, 1789-1800" offers a comprehensive overview of the most critical period in American history, examining the key events of the era while focusing on the titanic struggle between Hamilton and Jefferson for the soul of America. Nester rightly acknowledges the triumph of Hamilton's vision, for while Hamilton's personal power diminished rapidly during this period, his dreams for the new nation prevailed, launching the United States on the path to superpower status."--Stephen F. Knott, author of "Alexander Hamilton and the Persistence of Myth"--Stephen F. Knott
