The observations made by J.

For more than six decades questions involving the social implications of the struggle for independence have continued to intrigue historians, and their explorations of the Revolutionary experience from the perspective Jameson suggested have produced a rich and varied literature. The essays featured in this volume demonstrate the ongoing vitality and importance of contemporary scholarship on the social character of the American Revolution

"Meeting each crisis with compromise, cunning, and a tenacious will to survive and prevail, the Carrolls earned an esteemed place in the new nation. Hoffman balances the intimacy of their frequently painful private lives against their contentious public role in American history. He shows how the journey from Irish rebels to American revolutionaries shaped and shattered the Carrolls - and then remade them into one of the first families of the Republic."--Jacket
The Bill of Rights : government proscribed( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Scholars Have Long Recognized, the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution - the Bill of Rights - resulted from the political negotiations that transpired in the various state ratifying conventions called to approve or reject the draft produced by the 1787 Constitutional Convention. The tenacious opposition that had marked many of the convention's deliberations quickly carried over into the states where Antifederalists, convinced that the proposed new form of government posed insidious dangers to the people and the states, insisted that its powers be sharply proscribed. The Bill of Rights that ultimately emerged from this process of accommodation and compromise has frequently been invoked as the republic's essential foundation of individual liberty. The opening essays in this collection by Lois G. Schwoerer, Donald S. Lutz, and Kenneth R. Bowling set the Bill of Rights in context by tracing its historical lineages and establishing the political context for its adoption by the states. Paul Finkelman sees the differences between Federalist fears of anarchy and Antifederalist fears of tyranny as eventually reconcilable, while Saul Cornell and Whitman H. Ridgway examine how particular functional dimensions of the various rights were popularly conceived. Michael Lienesch finds a major significance of the Bill of Rights to have been the enhanced credibility it afforded the new governing authority. Akhil Reed Amar goes beyond that conclusion and argues for the amendments' having important organizational and governing consequences, a position that Forrest McDonald rejects as not borne out by the subsequent history of the United States. Bernard Schwartz concludes the volume with a comparative examination of the American and French experiences with bills of rights that supports those scholars who argue for the critical role played by the Constitution's first amendments in matters of constitutional jurisprudence
Of consuming interests : the style of life in the eighteenth century( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Launching the "Extended Republic" : the Federalist Era( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume explore some of the potentially divisive realities that characterized the Federalist Era. Nine distinguished authors address themes that include the ideological assumptions that fueled the political debate, the interrelated character of social and political history, the role of the courts as an emerging force in arbitrating and containing conflict, and the expansionist impulses that pushed the new nation's borders westward. Gordon S. Wood introduces the collection with an incisive overview of the bold ambitions and unfulfilled aspirations of the critical first decade of the United States
