Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Americanism and Preparedness: Speeches of Theodore Roosevelt, July to November, 1916 I come here to Maine to advocate the election of Charles E. Hughes as President of the United States, and the election of a Senate and House of Representatives to support him, and to give some of the reasons why in my judgment it would be a grave misfortune for the people of the United States to re-elect Mr. Wilson. I make no merely partisan appeal. I ask the support of all good citizens for our cause. I ask the support of all good Americans. And I not merely ask, but demand as a matter of right, that every citizen voting this year shall consider the question at issue from the standpoint of America, and not from the standpoint of any other nation. The root idea of American citizenship, the necessary prerequisite for patriotic service at home, and for service to mankind at large, is that there shall be in our citizenship no dual allegiance. There must be no divided loyalty between this country and the country from which any of our citizens, or the ancestors of any of our citizens, have come. The policy of the United States must be shaped with a view to two conditions only: first, with a view to the honor and interest of the United States, and second, with a view to the interest of the world as a whole. It is therefore our high and solemn duty, both to prepare our own strength so as to guarantee our own safety, and also to treat every foreign nation, in any given crisis, as its conduct in that crisis demands. The citizen who does not so act, and who endeavors to shape America s policy in the interest of the country from which he or his ancestors have sprung, is no true American, and has no moral right to citizenship in this country. Any attempt to organize American citizens along politico-racial lines is a foul and evil thing. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Item Description: The University of Alabama Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 6th. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The turn of the 20th century represented one of the most chaotic periods in the nation s history, as immigrants, Native Americans, and African Americans struggled with their roles as Americans while white America feared their encroachments on national identity. This book examines Theodore Roosevelt s public rhetoric--speeches, essays, and narrative histories--as he attempted to craft one people out of many. Leroy G. Dorsey observes that Roosevelt s solution to the problem appeared straightforward: everyone could become Americans, pure and simple if they embraced his notion of Americanism. Roosevelt grounded his idea of Americanism in myth, particularly the frontier myth--a heroic combination of individual strength and character. When nonwhites and immigrants demonstrated these traits, they would become true Americans, earning an exalted status that they had heretofore been denied. Dorsey s analysis illuminates how Roosevelt s rhetoric achieved a number of delicate, if problematic, balancing acts. Roosevelt gave his audiences the opportunity to accept a national identity that allowed some room for immigrants and nonwhites, while reinforcing their status as others, thereby reassuring white Americans of their superior place in the nation. Roosevelt s belief in an ordered and unified nation did not overwhelm his private racist attitudes, Dorsey argues, but certainly competed with them. Despite his private sentiments, he recognised that racist beliefs and rhetoric were divisive and bad for the nation s progress. The resulting message he chose to propagate was thus one of a rhetorical, if not literal, melting pot. By focusing on Roosevelt s rhetorical constructions of national identity, as opposed to his personal exploits or his role as a policy maker, We Are All Americans offers new insights into Roosevelt s use of public discourse to bind the nation together during one of the most polarised periods in its history.

Item Description: The University of Alabama Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 6th. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The turn of the 20th century represented one of the most chaotic periods in the nation s history, as immigrants, Native Americans, and African Americans struggled with their roles as Americans while white America feared their encroachments on national identity. This book examines Theodore Roosevelt s public rhetoric--speeches, essays, and narrative histories--as he attempted to craft one people out of many. Leroy G. Dorsey observes that Roosevelt s solution to the problem appeared straightforward: everyone could become Americans, pure and simple if they embraced his notion of Americanism. Roosevelt grounded his idea of Americanism in myth, particularly the frontier myth--a heroic combination of individual strength and character. When nonwhites and immigrants demonstrated these traits, they would become true Americans, earning an exalted status that they had heretofore been denied. Dorsey s analysis illuminates how Roosevelt s rhetoric achieved a number of delicate, if problematic, balancing acts. Roosevelt gave his audiences the opportunity to accept a national identity that allowed some room for immigrants and nonwhites, while reinforcing their status as others, thereby reassuring white Americans of their superior place in the nation. Roosevelt s belief in an ordered and unified nation did not overwhelm his private racist attitudes, Dorsey argues, but certainly competed with them. Despite his private sentiments, he recognised that racist beliefs and rhetoric were divisive and bad for the nation s progress. The resulting message he chose to propagate was thus one of a rhetorical, if not literal, melting pot. By focusing on Roosevelt s rhetorical constructions of national identity, as opposed to his personal exploits or his role as a policy maker, We Are All Americans offers new insights into Roosevelt s use of public discourse to bind the nation together during one of the most polarised periods in its history.
