16 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The struggle between Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party and Alexander Hamilton's Federalist Party defined - and jeopardized - the political life of the early American republic. While Thomas Jefferson's election in 1800 signaled the beginning of the end for the Federalists, they did maintain their stronghold in New England for two more decades. Although greatly outnumbered, they managed to subvert numerous policies of James Madison's administration in the period before and during the War of 1812, threatening the very existence of the fragile young nation." "The world of the Founding Fathers comes to life in this tale of how close the union came to falling apart almost fifty years before the Civil War."--Jacket
In irons : Britain's naval supremacy and the American Revolutionary economy by Richard Buel( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bogens undertitel er et amerikansk udtryk for at "Ligge i vindøjet" og der henvises til kolonikrigene, der så deres begyndelse i 1775. Således var vindøjet her den engelske flådes blokade af de nordamerikanske fristater. Den økonomiske og militære historie hænger sammen, og denne bog foretager en bedre end normalt set videnskabeligt forsket årsagssammenhæng, idet den som hovedkonklusion ser på den engelske flådeblokades påvirkning af landbrugssektoren og videre på den skade fristaterne påførtes ved engelsk besættelse af betydningsfulde landbrugsområder og manglende øversøiske eksportmuligheder for disse oprørske stater

Joel Barlow : American citizen in a revolutionary world by Richard Buel( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Poet, republican, diplomat, and entrepreneur, Joel Barlow filled many roles and registered impressive accomplishments. In the first biography of this fascinating figure in decades, Richard Buel Jr. recounts the life of a man more intimately connected to the Age of Revolution than perhaps any other American. Barlow was a citizen of the revolutionary world, and his adventures throughout the United States and Europe during both the American and French Revolutions are numerous and notorious. From writing his epic poem, The Vision of Columbus, to plotting a republican revolution in Britain to negotiating the release of American sailors taken captive by Barbary pirates, Joel Barlow personified the true spirit of the tumultuous times in which he lived. No one witnessed more climactic events or interacted with more significant people than Joel Barlow. It was his unique vision, his unfailing belief in republicanism, and his entrepreneurial spirit that drove Barlow to pursue the revolutionary ideal in a way more emblematic of the age than the lives of many of its prominent heroes. Buel is a knowledgeable guide, and in telling Barlow's story he explores the cultural landscape of the early American republic and engages the broader themes of the Age of Revolution. Few books explore in such a comprehensive fashion the political, economic, ideological, diplomatic, and technological dimensions of this defining moment in world history."--Front flap
