The intellectual construction of America : exceptionalism and identity from 1492 to 1800 by Jack P Greene( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Greene explores the changing definitions of America from the time of Europe's first contact with the New World through the establishment of the American republic. Challenging historians who have argued that colonial American societies differed little from those of early modern Europe, he shows that virtually all contemporary observers emphasized the distinctiveness of the new worlds being created in America. Rarely considering the high costs paid by Amerindians and Africans in the construction of those worlds, they cited the British North American colonies as evidence that America was for

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
Understanding the American Revolution : issues and actors by Jack P Greene( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together sixteen essays on the American Revolution by leading historian Jack Greene. Originally published between 1972 and the early nineties, these essays approach the Revolution as an episode in British imperial history rather than as the first step in the creation of an American nation. Greene addresses four major themes: why the Revolution occurred and how contemporaries explained it; how developments in the colonial era and the nature of colonial political societies affected the shape and character of the Revolution; what impact the Revolution had upon existing political cultures, particularly in Virginia; and how the experiences of important individuals can be used to illuminate the origin, nature, and impact of the Revolutionary experience. In Understanding the American Revolution, Greene explores such problems as Virginia's political behavior during the Revolutionary era; the roles of three cultural brokers, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, and Phillip Mazzei; and why the Revolution had such a short half-life as a model for large-scale revolutions. He explores the colonial roots of the political structures that Revolutionary leaders created, and he asks why the American Revolution was not more radical

Creating the British Atlantic : essays on transplantation, adaptation, and continuity by Jack P Greene( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these essays Greene explores the efforts to impose Old World institutions, identities, and values upon the New World societies being created during the colonization process. He shows how transplanted Old World components -- political, legal, and social -- were adapted to meet the demands of new, economically viable, expansive cultural hearths. Green argues that these transplantations and adaptations were of fundamental importance to the formation and evolution of the new American republic and the society it trpresented."--Back cover of paperback
