American nationalisms : imagining union in the age of revolutions, 1783-1833 by Benjamin E Park( Book )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Americans will have no Center of Union among them, and no Common Interest to pursue, when the Power and Government of England are finally removed. Moreover, when the Intersections and Divisions of their Country by great Bays of the Sea, and by vast Rivers, Lakes, and Ridges of Mountains;-and above all, when those immense inland Regions, beyond the Back Settlements, which are still unexplored, are taken into the Account, they form the highest Probability that the Americans never can be united ... under any Species of Government whatever. Their Fate seems to be- A DISUNITED PEOPLE, till the End of Time."--Josiah Tucker (1781) "What then is the American, this new man? ... He is an American, who, leaving behind him all his ancient prejudices and manners, receives new ones from the new mode of life he has embraced, the new government he obeys, and the new rank he holds.--Provided by publisher
Kingdom of Nauvoo : the rise and fall of a religious empire on the American frontier by Benjamin E Park( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An extraordinary story of faith and violence in nineteenth-century America, based on previously confidential documents from the Mormon Church. Compared to the Puritans, Mormons have rarely gotten their due, often treated as fringe cultists or marginalized polygamists unworthy of serious examination. In Kingdom of Nauvoo, Benjamin E. Park excavates the brief, tragic life of a lost Mormon city, demonstrating that the Mormons are essential to understanding American history writ large. Using newly accessible sources, Park recreates the Mormons' 1839 flight from Missouri to Illinois. There, under the charismatic leadership of Joseph Smith, they founded Nauvoo, which shimmered briefly-but Smith's challenge to democratic traditions, as well as his new doctrine of polygamy, would bring about its fall. His wife Emma, rarely written about, opposed him, but the greater threat came from without: in 1844, a mob murdered Joseph, precipitating the Mormon trek to Utah. Throughout his absorbing chronicle, Park shows that far from being outsiders, the Mormons were representative of their era in their distrust of democracy and their attempt to forge a sovereign society of their own"--
