Political Culture of the American Whigs by Daniel Walker Howe

Book Description

Howe studies the American Whigs with the thoroughness so often devoted their party rivals, the Jacksonian Democrats. He shows that the Whigs were not just a temporary coalition of politicians but spokesmen for a heritage of political culture received from Anglo-American tradition and passed on, with adaptations, to the Whigs' Republican successors. He relates this culture to both the country's economic conditions and its ethnoreligious composition.

What Hath God Wrought by Daniel Walker Howe What Hath God Wrought, Paperback (November 2009)

Historian Howe illuminates the period of American history from the battle of New Orleans to the end of the Mexican-American War, an era when the United States expands to the Pacific and wins control over the richest part of the North American continent.

Making the American Self by Daniel Walker Howe Making the American Self, Paperback (October 2009)

Many early Americans sought the opportunity to "make something of themselves"-not only to choose an occupation but to fulfill their potential, to engage in "self-improvement." This book reconstructs their project from the time of Jonathan Edwards and Benjamin Franklin to that of Abraham Lincoln, Margaret Fuller, and Frederick Douglass.
