Unfinished revolution : the early American republic in a British world by Sam W Haynes( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conflicted and complex, American attitudes toward Great Britain provided a framework through which citizens of the republic developed a clearer sense of their national identity. Writing from the vantage point of America's unrivaled global dominance, historians have tended to see in the young nation the superpower it would become. Haynes argues that, for all its claims of distinctiveness and the "manifest destiny," the young republic exhibited a set of anxieties not uncommon among nation-states that have emerged from long periods of colonial rule.--[book jacket]

Contested empire : rethinking the Texas Revolution( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To a large degree, the story of Texas' secession from Mexico has been undertaken by scholars of the state. Early twentieth century historians of the revolutionary period, most notably Eugene Barker and William Binkley, characterized the conflict as a clash of two opposing cultures, yet their exclusive focus on the region served to reinforce popular notions of a unique Texas past. Disconnected from a broader historiography, scholars have been left to ponder the most arcane details of the revolutionary narrative-such as the circumstances of David Crockett's death and whether William Barret Travi
