📒Empire For Liberty ✍ Richard H. Immerman
✏Empire for Liberty Book Summary : Tells the story of the men throughout American history who used the rhetoric of liberty to further imperial ambitions, and argues that the quest for empire has guided the nation's architects from the very beginning--and continues to do so today. By the author of The CIA in Guatemala.
📒Empire For Liberty ✍ Wai Chee Dimock
✏Empire for Liberty Book Summary : Wai Chee Dimock approaches Herman Melville not as a timeless genius, but as a historical figure caught in the politics of an imperial nation and an "imperial self." She challenges our customary view by demonstrating a link between the individualism that enabled Melville to write as a sovereign author and the nationalism that allowed America to grow into what Jefferson hoped would be an "empire for liberty."
📒Empire Of Liberty ✍ Robert W. Tucker
✏Empire of Liberty Book Summary : Empire of Liberty takes a new look at the public life, thought, and ambiguous legacy of one of America's most revered statesmen, offering new insight into the meaning of Jefferson in the American experience. This work examines Jefferson's legacy for American foreign policy in the light of several critical themes which continue to be highly significant today: the struggle between isolationists and interventionists, the historic ambivalence over the nation's role as a crusader for liberty, and the relationship between democracy and peace. Written by two distinguished scholars, this book provides invaluable insight into the classic ideas of American diplomacy.
📒Empire Of Liberty ✍ Gordon S. Wood
✏Empire of Liberty Book Summary : The Oxford History of the United States is by far the most respected multi-volume history of our nation. The series includes three Pulitzer Prize winners, two New York Times bestsellers, and winners of the Bancroft and Parkman Prizes. Now, in the newest volume in the series, one of America's most esteemed historians, Gordon S. Wood, offers a brilliant account of the early American Republic, ranging from 1789 and the beginning of the national government to the end of the War of 1812. As Wood reveals, the period was marked by tumultuous change in all aspects of American life--in politics, society, economy, and culture. The men who founded the new government had high hopes for the future, but few of their hopes and dreams worked out quite as they expected. They hated political parties but parties nonetheless emerged. Some wanted the United States to become a great fiscal-military state like those of Britain and France; others wanted the country to remain a rural agricultural state very different from the European states. Instead, by 1815 the United States became something neither group anticipated. Many leaders expected American culture to flourish and surpass that of Europe; instead it became popularized and vulgarized. The leaders also hope to see the end of slavery; instead, despite the release of many slaves and the end of slavery in the North, slavery was stronger in 1815 than it had been in 1789. Many wanted to avoid entanglements with Europe, but instead the country became involved in Europe's wars and ended up waging another war with the former mother country. Still, with a new generation emerging by 1815, most Americans were confident and optimistic about the future of their country. Named a New York Times Notable Book, Empire of Liberty offers a marvelous account of this pivotal era when America took its first unsteady steps as a new and rapidly expanding nation.
📒Empire Of Liberty ✍ Anthony Bogues
✏Empire of Liberty Book Summary : An original and stimulating critique of American empire
📒The Dominion Of War ✍ Fred Anderson
✏The Dominion of War Book Summary : Americans often think of their nation’s history as a movement toward ever-greater democracy, equality, and freedom. Wars in this story are understood both as necessary to defend those values and as exceptions to the rule of peaceful progress. In The Dominion of War, historians Fred Anderson and Andrew Cayton boldly reinterpret the development of the United States, arguing instead that war has played a leading role in shaping North America from the sixteenth century to the present. Anderson and Cayton bring their sweeping narrative to life by structuring it around the lives of eight men—Samuel de Champlain, William Penn, George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, Ulysses S. Grant, Douglas MacArthur, and Colin Powell. This approach enables them to describe great events in concrete terms and to illuminate critical connections between often-forgotten imperial conflicts, such as the Seven Years’ War and the Mexican-American War, and better-known events such as the War of Independence and the Civil War. The result is a provocative, highly readable account of the ways in which republic and empire have coexisted in American history as two faces of the same coin. The Dominion of War recasts familiar triumphs as tragedies, proposes an unconventional set of turning points, and depicts imperialism and republicanism as inseparable influences in a pattern of development in which war and freedom have long been intertwined. It offers a new perspective on America’s attempts to define its role in the world at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
📒Empire And Liberty ✍ Virginia Scharff
✏Empire and Liberty Book Summary : Empire and Liberty brings together two epic subjects in American history: the story of the struggle to end slavery that reached a violent climax in the Civil War, and the story of the westward expansion of the United States. Virginia Scharff and the contributors to this volume show how the West shaped the conflict over slavery and how slavery shaped the West, in the process defining American ideals about freedom and influencing battles over race, property, and citizenship. This innovative work embraces East and West, as well as North and South, as the United States observes the 2015 sesquicentennial commemoration of the end of the Civil War. A companion volume to an Autry National Center exhibition on the Civil War and the West, Empire and Liberty brings leading historians together to examine artifacts, objects, and artworks that illuminate this period of national expansion, conflict, and renewal.
📒America Empire Of Liberty ✍ David Reynolds
✏America Empire of Liberty Book Summary : It was Thomas Jefferson who envisioned the United States as a great 'empire of liberty.' In the first new one-volume history in two decades, David Reynolds takes Jefferson's phrase as a key to the saga of America - helping unlock both its grandeur and its paradoxes. He examines how the anti-empire of 1776 became the greatest superpower the world has seen, how the country that offered liberty and opportunity on a scale unmatched in Europe nevertheless founded its prosperity on the labour of black slaves and the dispossession of the Native Americans. He explains how these tensions between empire and liberty have often been resolved by faith - both the evangelical Protestantism that has energized U.S. politics since the foundation of the nation and the larger faith in American righteousness that has impelled the country's expansion. Reynolds' account is driven by a compelling argument which illuminates our contemporary world.
📒Empire Of Liberty ✍ Tom Donelson
✏Empire of Liberty Book Summary : America is a force for good. American ideals are triumphing throughout the world, and yet opposition to those ideas is still there. From the various cells of radical Islamic fundamentals to various intellectual elites in Europe and even in the United States, America is still attacked with both words and bullet. Just ask yourself this, would the world be better if the United States was not active in world affairs? That is the heart of the debate. My view is simple. America is good for the world. Throughout the centuries, freedom has been the one entity continuously deprived. Jesus told us "Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto the God the things that are God's." Jesus' message was straightforward, there are things that are the purview of God and man cannot interfere or deny. Christianity reminds us that there are matters even more important than ourselves and that even our rulers are under the power of God. Caesar may have his place, but it is to rule not dominate. Caesar can't be God. Indian author Gurcharau Das once observed that democracy is best in the hands of modest men. Modesty is a virtue for it is in modesty that individuals understand that there are limits to government and limits to what the courts can accomplish. Why conservatives believe in limited government is simple. The ability of government to solve all problems is impossible, and government is but one actor in society. Within the whole of society, many players interact from local businesses and local churches to local communities. Society is made of many parts and government is the legal vehicle to ensure that justice is for all. It is the vehicle to protect our right, not to abuse them. Government protects the freedom to worship, to speak out, to work and establish business. The hallmark of a conservative is modesty. Thomas Donelson
