Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Arguably the most effective and often the most controversial force in modern politics is nationalism, which both unites and divides. According to Lind (The Next American Nation, LJ 6/1/95), such an interpretation of nationalism, especially in the U.S. context, is inaccurate and insufficient. Nationalism, Lind contends, is neither dirty nor un-American but has deep and positive roots in American soil, producing a rich country domestically and a powerful one internationally. To a large degree, Lind is on target, for central to the American political and intellectual tradition is the idea of the nation, as exemplified in the thought and practice of the likes of Hamilton, Lincoln, and the Roosevelts. Such Hamiltonian visionary nationalism, Lind argues, is essential for recovering our civic culture and realizing the purposes of our polity as expressed in the preamble to the Constitution. His book must be encountered in the ongoing debate about the health of our body politic. Recommended for all libraries.?Stephen Shaw, Northwest Nazarene Coll., Nampa, Ind.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Product arrived, as described. The book contains a variety of writings by proponents of the democratic-nationalist tradition in American politics including Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, Herman Melville, John Marshall, John Jay, Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Clay and Abraham Lincoln. It provides a formidable perspective on American politics by eminent thinkers of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. In the case of Melville, the book may not adequately separate the writer from his written work (just because the narrator says so does not, by necessity, mean the author feels it). This is a wonderful companion to any course, reading program, or study session on the history and politics of the United States.

Format: Hardcover
The introduction is great, but the journey through the different political writings is the best.
