Description for Bookstore
Historians and literary critics from both sides of the Atlantic analyze significant watersheds and faultlines from 1775-1815--a crucial era in the history of Euro-Americans relations. Tracing patterns of intellectual and cultural cross-pollination between the Old and the New World, between pre- and post-Revolutionary cultures, the essays increase awareness of the degree to which the emergence of cultural nationalism in this period was essentially a transatlantic processa process that was itself part of a larger circumatlantic cultural continuum.
