Synopsis: Now in paperback this book displaces the notion that 18th-century Scotland and America were mere cultural provinces of England. It shows that Scottish religious culture, philosophy, medical education, music and architecture were directly influencing British North America at this time. 16 contributors including David Daiches, Andrew Hook and Bruce Lenman, focus on 3 main topics: religion and revolution as affected by the work of John Witherspoon; the influence of Scottish philosophers such as David Hume, Adam Smith and William Robertson on the American founding fathers, and vice-versa; and Scottish thought and culture in early Philadelphia. For those new to the period there is an extensive historiographical introduction, and chapters cover all aspects of the arts and sciences, including music, rhetoric, politics, philosophy, economics, jurisprudence, medicine, architecture and literature.
