"This is a highly readable, nicely fleshed-out distillation of key themes and developments in the early republic, most notably the new nation's transformation from an (ideally) orderly republic to a tumultuous democracy and from a 'colonial' economy dependent on exports to a more 'developed' economy with strong internal markets. It makes sense of Americans' hopes and expectations coming out of the ratification period and provides a map for navigating the economic, social, and political developments not only up to 1829, but also afterwards."--Kirsten Wood, Florida International University"This text, written by a master historian and incorporating the outpouring of research on the New Republic from the last two decades, should prove very useful. Johnson's scholarship is impeccable."--Lawrence Peskin, Morgan University"No other work I can think of would provide as clear or as quick an introduction."--Christopher Clark, University of Warwick, U.K.From the Publisher:
This brief text covers the political, social, and cultural history of the United States from 1789-1829. While many books approach the period of the Early Republic from two distinct standpoints - either from a social and cultural perspective or from a political point of view - this book synthesizes all aspects of U.S. history during this era. "The Early American Republic, 1789-1829" centers on two main themes: the politics and the process of nation-making, from the origins of government under the Constitution through the inauguration of Andrew Jackson, and the beginnings of American market society. Discussing the politics of American nationhood, democracy, and capitalism, it also examines such topics as family life, religion, the construction and reconstruction of gender systems, the rise of popular print and other forms of communication, and evolving attitudes toward slavery and race.
