about

The War of 1812 played a critical role in the emergence of an American 'culture of capitalism.' In the Republic Reborn Steven Watts offers a brilliant new interpretation of the war and the foundation of liberal America. He explores the sweeping changes that took place in America between 1790 and 1820--the growth of an entrepreneurial economy of completion, the development of a liberal political structure and ideology, and the rise of a bourgeois culture of self-interest and self-control.

Editorial Reviews

As the national love feast with Oliver North reminded us, Americans have an abiding attraction to war and warriors... The Republic Reborn probes the historical roots of this attraction.
