Between Sovereignty and Anarchy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Between Sovereignty and Anarchy free pdf Between Sovereignty and Anarchy considers the conceptual and political problem of violence in the early modern Anglo-Atlantic, charting an innovative approach to the history of the American Revolution. Its editors and contributors contend that existing scholarship on the Revolution largely ignores questions of power and downplays the Revolution as a contest over sovereignty. Contributors employ a variety of methodologies to examine diverse themes, ranging from how Atlantic perspectives can redefine our understanding of revolutionary origins- to the ways in which political culture, mobilization, and civil-war-like violence were part of the revolutionary process- to the fundamental importance of state formation for the history of the early republic. The editors skillfully meld these emerging currents together to produce a new perspective on the American Revolution, revealing how Americaufirst as colonies, then as united statesureeled between poles of anarchy and sovereignty. This interpretationugleaned from essays on frontier bloodshed, religion, civility, slavery, loyalism, mobilization, early national political culture, and warmakinguprovides a needed stimulus to a field that has not strayed beyond the bounds of ""rhetoric versus reality"" for more than a generation. Between Sovereignty and Anarchy raises foundational questions about how we are to view the American Revolution and the type of experimental democracy that emerged in its wake.
