9780742521643: Revolutionary Currents: Nation Building in the Transatlantic World

In the Age of Democratic Revolution, countries on both sides of the Atlantic were linked together through trade networks, diplomatic ties, and social interactions. More importantly, however, they also shared a common revolutionary dynamic that oscillated back and forth across the ocean. Revolutionary Currents explores the global crosscurrents and revolutionary ideologies that inspired four great modern revolutions—England's Glorious Revolution of 1688-89, the American Revolution of 1776, the French Revolution in 1789, and the Mexican Revolution in the early 1800s. Michael A. Morrison and Melinda S. Zook bring together noted historians to look at how each nation reshaped these revolutionary traditions, making them their own, and exported them once again. In examining each event, the contributors respond to the historiographical trends of revolutionary ideology, transatlantic cross-fertilzation of ideas, and nation-building. In assessing and analyzing the ideas, traditions, and nationalisms that inspired revolution and nation-building in the modern world, this book breaks new ground in the area of transatlantic history.

Review:

This volume will be a valuable contribution to any discussion of the dynamic interplay between the ramifications of historical attempts at nation building and the current march towards globalization. (Doina Pasca Harsanyi)

Six distinguished historians offer trenchant examinations of nations, nation-building, and nationalism in a work that will act as a catalyst for thinking about these protean subjects. (Appleby, Joyce)

This book will reward graduate and advanced undergraduate students interested in the making of nationalism or Atlantic history. (Timothy M. Roberts)

It is always a pleasure to read work by historians of this caliber. Each essay summarizes the state of its field, while advancing an original interpretation. All the contributors are extremely well-versed in the scholarship of their fields, and each essay includes extensive footnotes that could easily serve as graduate reading lists. The essays are notable for their clarity of writing and analysis, and I think they would be appropriate for an upper-level undergraduate seminar. (H-Net)

This collection, with its extensive bibliographic notes and usable index, is worth pondering, not only to grasp polity formation in the early modern era but also to find a perspective on current trends. (Robert P. Gildrie)
