Description for Bookstore
An analysis of the literary conflicts that garnered the attention of British and American writers, offering fresh insight into the evolution of British and American nationalisms
Long Description
The Anglo-American Paper War analyzes the forgotten literary conflict that garnered the attention of many renowned British and American writers: a war over images of the United States. The Paper War illustrated the diversity of nationalisms in both the United States and Britain, as Britons used America within their own domestic paper wars and Americans contested the meaning of their young republic. The creation of images of America was a two-way process, as Americans contributed to the creation of British commentaries regarding the United States and Britons shaped American self-understanding. Despite their Anglophobic proclamations of independence, Americans continued to use Britain as their measure. In this volume, Joseph Eaton offers valuable insight into the multiplicity of British and American nationalisms, the maturation of apologetics for slavery, the post-revolution exclusion of women from politics, and the early development of anti-Americanism.
