White over black: American attitudes toward the Negro, 1550-1812 by Winthrop D Jordan( Book )

10 editions published between 1968 and 1979 in English and held by 2,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Englishmen in Jamestown who greeted the first "twenty Negars" who arrived in 1619 had already acquired an attitude toward the Negro - from tradition, from religion, from earlier European contacts with Africans. And as the Englishman became the colonial, and then the revolutionary patriot, and finally the citizen of a new nation, seeking to find his identit in a new land, he created chattel slavery and was in turn confronted by it. This is a study of the process, from the sixteenth century through the early years of the Republic. -- from dust jacket

The Great Awakening : documents on the revival of religion, 1740-1745 by Richard L Bushman( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in English and held by 1,815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most twentieth-century Americans fail to appreciate the power of Christian conversion that characterized the eighteenth-century revivals, especially the Great Awakening of the 1740s. The common disdain in this secular age for impassioned religious emotion and language is merely symptomatic of the shift in values that has shunted revivals to the sidelines. The very magnitude of the previous revivals is one indication of their importance. Between 1740 and 1745 literally thousands were converted. From New England to the southern colonies, people of all ages and all ranks of society underwent the New Birth. Virtually every New England congregation was touched. It is safe to say that most of the colonists in the 1740s, if not converted themselves, knew someone who was, or at least heard revival preaching. The Awakening was a critical event in the intellectual and ecclesiastical life of the colonies. The colonists' view of the world placed much importance on conversion. Particularly, Calvinist theology viewed the bestowal of divine grace as the most crucial occurrence in human life. Besides assuring admission to God's presence in the hereafter, divine grace prepared a person for a fullness of life on earth. In the 1740s the colonists, in overwhelming numbers, laid claim to the divine power which their theology offered them. Many experienced the moral transformation as promised. In the Awakening the clergy's pleas of half a century came to dramatic fulfillment. Not everyone agreed that God was working in the Awakening. Many believed preachers to be demagogues, stirring up animal spirits. The revival was looked on as an emotional orgy that needlessly disturbed the churches and frustrated the true work of God. But from 1740 to 1745 no other subject received more attention in books and pamphlets. Through the stirring rhetoric of the sermons, theological treatises, and correspondence presented in this collection, readers can vicariously participate in the ecstasy as well as in the rage generated by America's first national revival

The ordeal of the longhouse : the peoples of the Iroquois League in the era of European colonization by Daniel K Richter( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richter examines a wide range of primary documents to survey the responses of the peoples of the Iroquois League--the Mohawks, Oneidas, Onondagas, Cayugas, Senecas, and Tuscaroras--to the challenges of the European colonialization of North America. He demonstrates that by the early eighteenth century a series of creative adaptations in politics and diplomacy allowed the peoples of the Longhouse to preserve their cultural autonomy in a land now dominated by foreign powers."--Amazon.com

Revolutionary brotherhood : Freemasonry and the transformation of the American social order, 1730-1840 by Steven C Bullock( )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first comprehensive history of the fraternity known to outsiders primarily for its secrecy and rituals. Steven Bullocks traces Freemasonry through its first century in America. He follows the order from its origins in Britain and its introduction into North America in the 1730s to its near-destruction by a massive anti-Masonic movement almost a century later and its subsequent reconfiguration into the brotherhood we know today. With a membership that included Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Paul Revere, and Andrew Jackson. Freemasonry is fascinating in its own right, but Bullock also places it at the center of the transformation of American society and culture from the colonial era to the rise of Jacksonian democracy." "Using lodge records, members' reminiscences and correspondence, and local and Masonic histories. Bullock links Freemasonry with the changing ideals of early American society."--Jacket
