Samuels's reinterpretation of early American culture will awaken new interest and spark new ideas for anyone interested in this period, regardless of their disciplinary, theoretical, or ideological perspectives. Her striking thesis and fresh, penetrating readings will challenge established assumptions and generate lively and productive debates. Her splendid book will set a new agenda for early American studies. (Emory Elliott, University of California, Los Angeles and author of Revolutionary Writers: Literature and Authority in the New Republic, 1725-1810 (OUP 1986))
From the Back Cover
The politics of identity in the period of the early American republic involved the cultural production of a national self. In Romances of the Republic, Shirley Samuels examines revolutionary rhetoric from the 1790s through the 1850s primarily in novels, but also in poems, pamphlets, political cartoons, and sermons.See all Product Description
