The pursuit of equality in American history by J. R Pole( Book )

24 editions published between 1978 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 1,805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The demand for equality has given the cutting edge to nearly every important movement of social protest in American history. Together with individual liberty, equality is the central moral and ideological commitment of the American Republic, the prime reason given in the Declaration of Independence for the nation's right to independent existence. The author seeks the meanings attached to the idea of equality by the people who have influenced policy and shaped the discussion from the middle of the eighteenth century to the present. He identifies certain conceptual categories, or levels of awareness: equality before the law, equality of political power, equality of religion and conscience, equality of opportunity, equality of sex, and equality of esteem. The emergence and interplay of these themes are then examines in the great historic controversies over two centuries: the American revolution itself, agrarian and commercial rivalries, economic advance and banking in the Jacksonian era, slavery and race, the rise of trusts and the decline of equality of opportunity, and the complex issues of religion, immigration, and assimilation. -- from Book Jacket

Tracing the war's far-reaching repercussions from the Caribbean to Russia, the editors view it as a major event in world history and provide an international perspective on the periods before, during, and after the conflict. Moreover, the Companion provides a unique, cross-cultural picture of revolutionary America, with essays covering the arts, literature, music, religion, and language; contributors also discuss the status and experience of women and African American and Amerindian peoples of the period."--Jacket

"No competing edition of The Federalist offers nearly as much help in grasping Publius's arguments in defense of the new but unratified United States Constitution of 1787 as this new annotated edition by J.R. Pole. Essay by essay - with ample cross-references and glosses on 18th-century linguistic usage - Pole's commentary lays bare the intellectual background and assumptions of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay; explicates and critiques The Federalist's central concepts, rhetorical strategies, and arguments; and points up the international, national, and local facts on the ground relevant to Confederation Era New Yorkers, the constituency to which The Federalist was originally addressed."--Jacket
