Revolutionary histories : transatlantic cultural nationalism, 1775-1815 ( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 237 libraries worldwide
In this collection of interdisciplinary essays, historians and literary critics from both sides of the Atlantic analyse some of the most significant watersheds and faultlines that occurred in the period 1775-1815, a crucial era in the history of Euro-Americans relations. Tracing complex patterns of intellectual and cultural cross-pollination between the Old and the New World, between pre-and post-Revolutionary cultures, the essays aim to increase out awareness of the degree to which the emergence of cultural nationalism in this period was essentially a transatlantic process - a process that was itself part of a larger circumatlantic cultural continuum

The emigrants by Gilbert Imlay( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
"The American Gilbert Imlay is known to readers of British Romanticism as the cad who abandoned Mary Wollstonecraft, the founding mother of modern feminism. Few are as well-acquainted with The Emigrants, Imlay's delightful epistolary novel set in the Ohio River Valley of Kentucky, then the American frontier. The Emigrants (1793), one of the first Americna novels, contrasts the rigid political structures of England with the promise of the American West as a socially just utopia. Its sensational love plots also dramatize the plight of women trapped in degrading marriages, frankly advocating relaxed divorce laws."--Back cover
