A Mixed race : ethnicity in early America by Frank Shuffelton( )

17 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2,552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entering one of the most topical and energetic debates of our time, this collection of new essays addresses the issue of ethnicity, focusing on colonial America, a period which has been previously overlooked in recent scholarship about the formation of American culture. The essays [in this book] suggest that American culture has arisen out of an unusually rich and interactive ethnic mix--inescapably multicultural from its very beginnings-- and that this representation of cultural differences has fundamentally defined American culture. They argue that a culture shaped by responses to ethnic and racial difference is not merely a modern circumstance but one at the base of American history"--Back cover
Thomas Hooker, 1586-1647 by Frank Shuffelton( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining the relationship between Hooker's activities and his writings, Frank Shuffelton considers his role in the crises of early New England politics and religion. The author analyzes Hooker's works and shows that as preacher and pastor, theologian and architect of the Puritan religious community, Thomas Hooker voiced concerns that remained important throughout American history. The analysis of Hooker's career is especially valuable for the information it provides concerning his close involvement with the major issues of the day: the conflict between Roger Williams and the Bay Colony; the antinomian controversy; the political and religious striving of the Massachusetts Bay Colony; and the forming of a truly American community. The author distinguishes several phases in Hooker's activities that correspond to his cultural and geographical milieu at different times. He discusses Hooker's education, first pastoral experience, and career. Originally published in 1977.

Notes on the State of Virginia by Thomas Jefferson( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A request in 1780 by the French legation to the United States to learn more about the newly formed thirteen states of America stimulated in Jefferson, as he later described it, a "mysterious obligation for making me much better acquainted with my own country than I ever was before." Written during his first term as governor of Virginia, Notes on the State of Virginia is at once a scientific discourse, an attempt to define America, and an examination of the idea of freedom. With the same genius and clear, flexible prose style that informs the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson chronicles Virginia's natural, social, and political history." "In his introduction to this annotated edition, which discusses the work's origins and composition, Frank Shuffelton focuses particularly on Jefferson's response to contemporary scientific writings on "New World degeneracy," his differing treatment of blacks and Native Americans, and his influential role in creating a mythicized American self-image."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Jefferson firmly believed that liberty could only be preserved by a knowledgeable people willing to act on the basis of their reason and morality. Education was key so he advocated for a three-tiered system of education - primary schools, what is now known as high schools, and then universities, so students would have easy access to them in each locality. He went on to emphasize ward politics, small units of government within Virginia's counties, so that decision-making could be carried out at the local level such that all citizens could participate
