Description : This collection of essays examines the importance of virtue, corruption, and self-interest in the contexts of different political and historic settings. The book spans historic time frames (from the Glorious Revolution through the American and French Revolutions to the present), contrasts cultures (England, British America, the United States, France, Spain and its Empire), and represents the efforts of scholars from analytically distinct disciplines (political science, political theory, philosophy, intellectual and social history). The idea for this volume developed from The Lawrence Henry Gipson Institute for Eighteenth-Century Studies at Lehigh University. The Gipson Institute was established in 1972 as a memorial to the outstanding historian who was the recipient of the 1950 Bancroft Prize and the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for selected volumes in his British Empire Series. The chief aim of the Gipson Institute has been to promote an understanding of the eighteenth century from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Conceptions of virtue and corruption have been central in the study of politics and history since at least the time of Plato and Aristotle. But while these concepts can be seen as significant in the works of Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, for instance, they are - beginning with Bernard Mandeville's Fable of the Bees (1714) - thematic of the eighteenth century. Mandeville's assault on the feudal ethos and the morality of the traditional world is treated in a nonsatirical and systematic manner in Adam Smith's An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776). There, Smith argues that the unrestricted pursuit of individual self-interest would create a harmonious public order where the benefits of economic growth would trickle down to all members of civil society. Not until the middle of the next century do the ethics of market liberalism come under systematic attack - by Karl Marx, who in his critique of capitalism seeks a dialectical return to the organic community of feudalism as well as the unleashing of the potentialities of social individualism. In the hope of gaining new insights and fresh perspectives on this debate - and in the imperial spirit of Lawrence Gipson - the institute asked not only intellectual and social historians, but also political theorists and political scientists, to contribute to the volume. In addition, the institute asked scholars of the French and Spanish empires to think about virtue and corruption themes as they applied to their scholarly frames of reference.

Description : The United States was formed by a group of people fighting back against perceived injustices by Great Britain, which the British viewed as justified actions. Both sides of the story of American independence are presented to readers, along with colorful maps, discussion questions, and annotated quotes. In-depth sidebars help readers connect these events to their own lives by examining how the American Revolution is presented in pop culture, and by exploring what the historical sites mentioned are like today. This fresh approach encourages readers to think critically about the events that ultimately led to American independence.

Description : The American Revolution was one of the most significant events in modern history. Not only did it demonstrate the ability of a significantly smaller group of people to rebel against their oppressors, but it also spawned what has become the most powerful country in the world. The A to Z of Revolutionary America is not just about the grievances that led to the actual war itself, but the subsequent period of trial and error - when success was far from certain and failure could never be ruled out - in which thirteen states and those that followed were bonded into the United States of America. This extraordinary epoch is examined in an introductory essay; chronology; bibliography; appendices documenting the signers of the Articles of Confederation and Declaration of Independence, attendees of the Constitutional Convention and presidents of congress; and more than 1,000 cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant people, as well as political, economic, and social events of the era.

Description : Presented here is a view of the American Revolution which differs radically from the prevailing notion that it came about as a result of a high-minded search for principles. Instead, Professor Martin believes that the Revolution was a far more complex affair than the simple defence of liberty against the British and a search for Republican ideals and that the results of the Revolution had even greater long term effects on the development of a national identity than the immediate realisation of independence.

Description : Revised and expanded in this third edition, American Legal History now features a new coauthor, James Ely, who is a specialist in the history of property rights. This highly acclaimed text provides a comprehensive selection of the most important documents in the field, which integrates the history of public and private law from America's colonial origins to the present. Devoting special attention to the interaction of social and legal change, it shows how legal ideas developed in tandem with specific historical events and reveals a rich legal culture unique to America. The book also deals with state and federal courts and looks at the relationship between the development of American society, politics, and economy, and how it relates to the evolution of American law. Introductions and instructive headnotes accompany each document, tying legal developments to broader historical themes and providing a social and political context essential to an understanding of the history of law in America. American Legal History, Third Edition, offers fresh material throughout and increased coverage of cases on such topics as slave law, politics, and terrorism. The authors have incorporated more cases dealing with minority rights, including Native American and Asian American rights, women's rights, and gender and gay rights. Two new chapters have been added to this edition: one on law and economics in modern America, including a discussion of the new federalism, and the other on law, politics, and terrorism, including a full discussion of the USA PATRIOT Act. The "since 1945" portion includes up-to-date material and current cases. The section on English background and colonial America has been expanded. In addition, there is new material on the most recent developments in American constitutional and legal history. Setting the legal challenges of the twenty-first century in a broad context, American Legal History, Third Edition, is an essential text for students and teachers of constitutional and legal history, the judicial process, and the effects of society on law.

The language and sentiment are not as outmoded as some listeners might expect and it definitely feels patriotic to hear again the fundamentals of America's beginnings." -- Kliatt MagazineGeorge Washington wrote, "I find that Common Sense is working a powerful change there (Virginia) in the minds of many men." The passion of the patriot Thomas Paine comes straight on and one can better understand the forces that shaped this country.
