Nationality, argues Peter Hall, did not follow directly from the colonists' declatation of independence from England, nor from the political union of the states under the Constitution of 1789. It was, rather, the product of organizations which socialized individuals to a national outlook. These institutions were the private corportions which Americans used after 1790 to carry on their central activities of production.

The book is in three parts. In the first part the social and economic development of the American colonies is considered. In New England, population growth led to the breakdown of community - and the migration of people to both the cities and the frontier. New England's merchants and professional tried to maintain community leadership in the context of capitalism and democracy and developed a remarkable dependence on pricate corporations and the eleemosynary trust, devices that enabled them to exert influence disproportionate to their numbers. Part two looks at the problem of order and authority after 1790. Tracing the role of such New England-influenced corporate institutions as colleges, religious bodies, professional societeis, and businesses, Hall shows how their promoters sought to "civilize" the increasingly diverse and dispersed American people. With Jefferson's triumph in 1800. these institutions turned to new means of engineering consent, evangelical religion, moral fegorm, and education. The third part of this volume examines the fruition a=of these corporatist efforts. The author looks at the Civil War as a problem in large-scale organization, and the pre- and post-war emergence of a national administrative elite and national institutions of business and culture. Hall concludes with an evaluation of the organizational components of nationality and a consideration of the precedent that the past sets for the creation of internationality.

About the Author:

Peter Dobkin Hall has been a Research Associate at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies, Yale University and has taught at Wesleyan University. He is currently at work on a history of American culture in the twentieth century.

Review:

"An excellent analysis, perhaps the best one available, on the still active nationalist terrorist organization." -"Choice",

"George Kassimeris has deployed his masterly knowledge of contemporary Greek politics and ideas to explain how a violent revolutionary organization can emerge in a fragile democracy, and to analyze its impact on Greek politics. His meticulous analysis of 17N's historical antecedents, ideology, strategy and terrorist attacks, and the reactions of the Greek political parties and elites, helps us to understand better why 17N's assassination campaign has proved so durable."-Professor Paul Wilkinson, Director, Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St. Andrews
