The U.S. South and Europe : transatlantic relations in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by Cornelis A. van Minnen( )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The U.S. South is a distinctive political and cultural force--not only in the eyes of Americans, but also in the estimation of many Europeans. The region played an important role as a major agricultural center and the source of much of the wealth in early America, but it has also served as a catalyst for the nation's only civil war, and later, as a battleground in violent civil rights conflicts. Once considered isolated and benighted by the international community, the South has recently evoked considerable interest among popular and academic observers on both sides of the Atlantic. In The U.S. South and Europe, editors Cornelis A. van Minnen and Manfred Berg have assembled contributions that interpret a number of political, cultural, and religious aspects of the transatlantic relationship during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The contributors discuss a variety of subjects, including European colonization, travel accounts of southerners visiting Europe, and the experiences of the German 'Forty-Eighters'--immigrants who settled in the South after the German Revolution of 1848. This volume also examines slavery, foreign recognition of the Confederacy as a sovereign government, the lynching of African Americans and Italian immigrants in the South, and transatlantic religious fundamentalism. Finally, it addresses contemporary issues such as international perceptions of the Jim Crow South and the civil rights movement as a framework for understanding race relations in the United Kingdom following World War II. Featuring contributions from leading scholars based in the United States and Europe, this illuminating volume explores the South from an international perspective and offers a new context from which to consider the region's history."--Jacket

Four centuries of Dutch-American relations, 1609-2009( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American diplomats in the Netherlands, 1815-50 by Cornelis A. van Minnen( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a case study in American-European relations in the first half of the nineteenth century. Based upon the official and private correspondence of American diplomats to the Netherlands, it fills an important gap in U.S. diplomatic historiography. Introduced with a sketch of the foundations and organization of U.S. foreign policy and a survey of the first American diplomats in the Netherlands in the late eighteenth century, this book offers a gallery of biographies of their successors stationed at The Hague and Brussels, who viewed the European and Dutch situation more or less through sceptical American lenses and tended to stress and exaggerate the antithesis between the Old and New Worlds. Contrary to the popular image of nineteenth-century American diplomats as incompetent amateurs, Dr. van Minnen argues that, at least in the Dutch case, they performed their duties well and that their reports provided the United States with valuable information on the ins and outs of Europe in general and Dutch-American relations in particular

Beat culture : the 1950s and beyond( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In post-World War II America the creative minds of the Beat Generation have played a role that is hard to overlook, thoughas a distinctive counterculture - at the time they were often criticized by their mainstream middle-class fellow-Americans." "The nineteen essays in this volume, written by both Americans and Europeans, look at the Beats from historical, sociological, literary, and autobiographical perspectives, and aim to deepen our understanding of the Beat Generation and its legacy. In addition to the historical context of the United States in the Truman and Eisenhower years, the essays offer fresh insights about Beat authors such as Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, the subculture of the Beats, the reception of the Beat Generation in Europe, as well as the role of gender and ethnicity."--BOOK JACKET
