Creeks & Southerners : biculturalism on the early American frontier by Andrew Frank( )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 1,872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Creeks and Southerners examines the families created by the hundreds of intermarriages between Creek Indian women and European American men in the southeastern United States during the eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Called "Indian countrymen" at the time, these intermarried white men moved into their wives' villages in what is now Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. By doing so, they obtained new homes, familial obligations, occupations, and identities. At the same time, however, they maintained many of their ties to white American society and as a result entered the historical record in large numbers." "Creeks and Southerners studies the ways in which many children of these relationships lived both as Creek Indians and white Southerners. By carefully altering their physical appearances, choosing appropriate clothing, learning multiple languages, embracing maternal and paternal kinsmen and kinswomen, and balancing their loyalties, the children of intermarriages found ways to bridge what seemed to be an unbridgeable divide."--BOOK JACKET
Selling war in a media age : the presidency and public opinion in the American century by Kenneth Alan Osgood( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the early years of the Iraq War, George W. Bush drew attention to the ways in which American presidents try to "sell" war to the public. The "Mission Accomplished" banner in 2003 and the misleading linkages of Saddam Hussein to the 9/11 terrorist attacks awoke many Americans to the techniques used by the White House to put the country on a war footing. Yet Bush was simply following in the footsteps of his predecessors, as the essays in this standout volume reveal in illuminating detail. Ever since William McKinley led the country to war with Spain in 1898, presidents have pioneered new methods for manipulating the media to manufacture consent for costly military and diplomatic ventures abroad. From the Spanish-American War to the War on Terror, each chapter in Selling War in a Media Age explores how modern presidents have attempted to influence, orchestrate, and coerce public understanding of matters of war and peace. The essays also demonstrate that these efforts often inspire skepticism and doubt among the public. Like the war in Iraq, Korea and Vietnam were hard wars to sell---as was the largely forgotten yet terribly brutal campaign for the Philippines in McKinley's day. The Cold War---essentially a fifty-year war---likewise required constant selling by every American president from Truman to Reagan. Even Franklin D. Roosevelt toiled to maintain public morale during World War II."--Jacket
American Revolution : people and perspectives( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History books are filled with the words and exploits of America's founding fathers: Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, and Madison. But what about the farmers and slaves? The women and children? What of those citizens who opposed independence? This comprehensive work reveals that they all had their own distinctive parts to play in the emergence of the United States. American Revolution looks at one of the most significant eras in American history through the eyes of its least famous, least studied citizens. It is an eye-opening collection of essays demonstrating how the wrenching transformation from English colonies to an emerging nation affected Americans from all walks of life. American Revolution features the work of 14 accomplished social historians, whose findings are adding new dimensions to our understanding of the Revolutionary era. But some of the most fascinating contributions to this volume come from the people themselves -- the anecdotes, letters, diaries, journalism, and other documents that convey the experiences of the full spectrum of American society in the mid- to late-18th century (including women, African Americans, Native Americans, immigrants, soldiers, children, laborers, Quakers, sailors, and farmers). - Publisher
Borderland narratives : negotiation and accommodation in North America's contested spaces, 1500-1850 by Andrew K Frank( )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank and Crothers have gathered ten essays to explore the newer, more capacious applications of borderlands study, with a particular emphasis on the Ohio Valley--which, in its own uneasy placement between the traditional north/south sectional divide, becomes a case study in what can be gained by placing the borderlands concept at the center of inquiry. By crossing geographic, chronological, and methodological boundaries, the volume shows various ways the borderlands concept can enhance scholars' understanding of political, cultural, religious, and racial interactions throughout North America

Key events, such as the two-party political system, the Louisiana Purchase, the War of 1812, and the expansion into the Ohio Valley, are seen through the eyes of the ordinary citizens who helped make them happen, in turn, making the United States what it is today. --from publisher description

Before the pioneers : Indians, settlers, slaves, and the founding of Miami by Andrew K Frank( )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank brings to life the vibrant colonies of fugitives and seafarers that formed on the shores of Biscayne Bay in the eighteenth century. He tells of the emergence of the tropical fruit plantations and the accompanying enslaved communities, as well as the military occupation during the Seminole Wars. Eventually, the small seaport town flourished with the coming of "pioneers" like Julia Tuttle and Henry Flagler who promoted the city as a place of luxury and brought new waves of residents from the North. Frank pieces together the material culture and the historical record of the Miami River to re-create the fascinating past of one of the world's most influential cities
