The New Republic: The United States of America 1789-1815
Reginald Horsman

The series is launched with Reginald Horsman's powerful and comprehensive survey of the early years of the American Republic from 1789 to 1815. During this period the federal government had to prove that the Constitution drafted in 1787 could and would work and that republicanism was capable of existing over a vast and diverse area stretching from Maine to Georgia and the eastern seaboard to the Mississippi River. George Washington, and his successors Adams, Jefferson and Madison, also faced a number of external threats with England and Spain challenging the Northwest and Southwest borders and France renewing its ambitions in the Mississippi Valley.

A major strength of the book is that the coverage of the traditional topics about the shaping of the new government and crisis in foreign policy is combined with chapters on race, slavery, the economy and westward expansion. In doing so, the author reveals both the strengths and weaknesses of the government and society that came into being after the Revolution.

Key features include:

· Combines extensive research with the best recent scholarship on the period
· A balanced account of the contributions of the leading personalities
· Impressive coverage is given to questions of race and territorial expansion
· Chapter One provides a concise and lucid account of the state of American politics and society in 1789
· Extensive chapter bibliographies

The work will be welcomed by students studying the early republic as well as general readers interested in a stimulating and informative account of the early years of the American nation.

Reginald Horsman has recently retired from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has written extensively on the history of the early republic and related areas and this is his twelfth book.
