Contents:
Race and the Early Republic; Contents; Introduction; 1 The Pursuit of Whiteness: Property, Terror, and Expansion, 1790-1860; 2 "Believing That Many of the Red People Suffer Much for the Want of Food": Hunting, Agriculture, and a Quaker Construction of Indianness in the Early Republic; 3 From Class to Race in Early America: Northern Post-Emancipation Racial Reconstruction; 4 The "Condition" Debate and Racial Discourse in the Antebellum North; 5 "Here in America There Is Neither King Nor Tyrant": European Encounters with Race, "Freedom," and Their European Pasts
6 Modernizing "Difference": The Political Meanings of Color in the Free States, 1776-18407 Making the "White Man's Country" White: Race, Slavery, and State-Building in the Jacksonian South; 8 "We Have a Country": Race, Geography, and the Invention of Indian Territory; 9 The Culmination of Racial Polarities and Prejudice; Index; About the Contributors
Summary: By 1840, American politics was a paradox-unprecedented freedom and equality for men of European descent, and the simultaneous isolation and degradation of people of African and Native American descent. Historians have often characterized this phenomenon as the "white republic." Race and the Early Republic offers a rich account of how this paradox evolved, beginning with the fledgling nation of the 1770s and running through the antebellum years. The essays in the volume, written by a wide array of scholars, are arranged so as to allow a clear understanding of how and why white political supremacy came to be in the early United States. Race and the Early Republic is a collection of diverse, insightful and interrelated essays that promote an easy understanding of why and how people of color were systematically excluded from the early U.S. republic.
