The Declaration of Independence : a global history by David Armitage ( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,322 libraries worldwide
[The author] examines the Declaration as a political, legal, and intellectual document, and is the first to treat it entirely within a broad international framework. He shows how the Declaration arose within a global moment in the late eighteenth century similar to our own. He uses over one hundred declarations of independence written since 1776 to show the influence and role the U.S. Declaration has played in creating a world of states out of a world of empires. He discusses why the framers' language of natural rights did not resonate in Britain, how the document was interpreted in the rest of the world, whether the Declaration established a new nation or a collection of states, and where and how the Declaration has had an overt influence on independence movements--from Haiti to Vietnam, and from Venezuela to Rhodesia. -Publisher description.
The ideological origins of the British Empire by David Armitage ( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 724 libraries worldwide
"The Ideological Origins of the British Empire presents a history of British conceptions of empire for more than half a century. David Armitage traces the emergence of British imperial ideology from the middle of the sixteenth to the middle of the eighteenth century, using a full range of manuscript and printed sources. By linking the histories of England, Scotland and Ireland with the history of the British Empire, he demonstrates the importance of ideology as an essential linkage between the processes of state-formation and empire-building. This book sheds new light on major British political thinkers, from Sir Thomas Smith to David Hume, by providing novel accounts of the 'British problem' in the early-modern period, of the relationship between Protestantism and empire, of theories of property, liberty and political economy in imperial perspective, and of the imperial contribution to the emergence of British 'identities' in the Atlantic world."--BOOK JACKET.
