Revolutionary negotiations : Indians, empires, and diplomats in the founding of America by Leonard J Sadosky( )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 2,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Revolutionary Negotiation examines early American diplomatic negotiations with both the European powers and the various American Indian nations from the 1740s through the 1820s. Leonard J. Sadosky interweaves previously distinct settings for American diplomacy - courts and council fires - into a single transatlantic system of politics." "Whether states were functioning as provinces in the British Empire or as independent states, American assertions of power were directed simultaneously to the west and to the east - to Native American communities and to European empires across the Atlantic. American leaders aspired to equality with Europeans, who often dismissed them, while they were forced to concede agency to Native Americans, whom they often wished they could ignore. As Americans used diplomatic negotiation to assert their new nations equality with the great powers of Europe and gradually defined American Indian nations as possessing a different (and lesser) kind of sovereignty, they were also forced to confront the relations between the states in their own federal union." "Acts of diplomacy thus defined the founding of America - not only by drawing borders and facilitating commerce, but also by defining and constraining sovereign power in a way that privileged some and weakened others. These negotiations truly were revolutionary."--Jacket

Jeffersonian America by Peter S Onuf( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume lays out the conflict between Jeffersonian Republicans and their Federalist opponents who were accused of war-mongering, and exposes the irony of one of Jefferson's friends, President James Madison, leading the United States into the War of 1812, America's second war for independence. Jeffersonian America helps students, scholars, and general readers understand some of the fundamental tensions and paradoxes that have shaped the subsequent course of American history."--Jacket

In this ... book [the authors] analyze Thomas Jefferson's conception of American nationhood in light of the political and social demands facing the post-Revolutionary Republic in its formative years. [The authors'] approach to the history and historiography of this crucial period underscores the challenges of preserving American independence and securing a fragile union in a dangerous world. In clear terms, the volume lays out the conflict between Jeffersonian Republicans and their Federalist opponents who were accused of war-mongering, and exposes the irony of one of Jefferson's friends, President James Madison, leading the United States into the War of 1812, America's second war for independence. [This book] helps students, scholars, and general readers understand some of the fundamental tensions and paradoxes that have shaped the subsequent course of American history.-Back cover
