Description - American Counterrevolution by Larry E. Tise
Americans, thrilled with newly won independence in 1783, set out to create a new form of government, one in which equality for all would be the underpinning of society. Yet by 1800, voting rights remained accessible only to a landed aristocracy; slavery was codified in the Constitution; and women were no freer than they had been prior to the Revolution. The American Counterrevolution is an expansive study of this difficult period that traces our shift from the ideals of liberty to the politics of order. A refutation of virtually the entire historiography surrounding the outcomes of the Revolution, this epic narrative will change how we view American democracy.
