The olive branch, or, Faults on both sides, Federal and Democratic : a serious appeal on the necessity of mutual forgiveness and harmony by Mathew Carey( Book )

152 editions published between 1815 and 2017 in English and held by 3,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work is submitted to the public with an uncommon degree of solicitude and anxiety. The subject it embraces, and the objects it has in view, are of inexpressible magnitude. The former is the present critical situation of the United States, with the causes that have led to that situation ; the latter, the mitigation of party rage and rancour, and the restoration of harmony. It is no longer doubtful that a conspiracy exists in New England, among a few of the most wealthy and influential citizens, to effect a dissolution of the union, at every hazard, and to form a separate confederacy. This has been believed by some of our citizens for years, and strenuously denied by others, deceived by the mask the conspirators wore, and by their hollow professions. But it requres more than Boeotian stupidity and dulness, to hesitate on the subject, after the late extraordinary proceedings, which cannot possibly have any other object." -- Preface to the first edition, Philadelphia, Nov. 8, 1814

The new olive branch (1820) and selected essays by Mathew Carey( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathew Carey was one of the most popular and influential economic writers of his day, but his work has been largely overlooked by modern writers, who tend to focus on more scholarly writers or on precursors to contemporary classical economics. Carey was a self-taught printer and publisher who rejected Adam Smith, led the early fight for protective tariffs, and wrote hundreds of newspaper articles to convince the public of the need to protect American manufacturers. 'The New Olive Branch' is Carey's most important, accessible, and sustained elaboration of his political-economic ideas, and is accompanied in this volume by portions of his 'Addresses of the Philadelphia Society for the Promotion of National Industry' (1822), which offer further insight into his rejection of classical economics
