Crisis in freedom: the Alien and Sedition acts by John Chester Miller( Book )

18 editions published between 1951 and 2002 in English and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book covers the years 1798-1800 when the Federalists had become the party of extreme conservatism and were taking advantage of our undeclared war with France to brand the Jeffersonian Republicans as "pro-French traitors." Under cover of a war-emergency program, they attempted to proscribe their political enemies as enemies of the country. The fruits of this hysteria were the Alien and Sedition Laws which the Federalists rammed through Congress and which John Adams signed, forgetting his earlier pronouncements on the virtues of Constitutional liberties

The first frontier : life in Colonial America by John Chester Miller( Book )

33 editions published between 1966 and 1986 in English and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an original recreation of the way in which colonists lived, from the Puritan dwellings of New England to the Cavalier plantations of the South. In the words of contemporary observers, bridged by an absorbing running narrative, the reader is given insight into the human world of the colonists who made the foundations for early American life. With richness, humor and sometimes a pompous piety, colonials and those who visited them comment on courtship, marriage, children, education, food and drink, sports and recreation, religion, crime and punishment, slavery and other aspects of their society. - Back cover

Toward a more perfect union: the American Republic, 1783-1815 by John Chester Miller( Book )

4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book's central theme is the making of a nation from the disparate sections which composed the republic. Many individuals contributed toward this achievement. Their efforts were inadvertently furthered by the British government which, for many Americans of the postrevolutionary generation, stood as the 'eternal enemy' of the republic's territorial and ideological aspirations. It is significant that not until the Second War with Great Britain did Americans truly attain a sense of national identity"--John C. Miller, author
