George Washington

Was it true that Washington was... ...cold, cautious, and obsequious—unapproachable even to his friends? ...a man of vital passion and towering dignity—admired and loved by his soldiers? ...a bumbling general forced into victory by the incompetence of his enemies? ...a brilliant military leader, adept at the new ways of guerrilla warfare? ...egocentric, with the dangerous pretensions of a Caesar? ...a humble, modest man, sacrificing his own pleasure in his devotion to public duty? What was the myth?...What was the man? Step by step, author Marcus Cunliffe traces the ancestral background, the childhood, the growth, the failures and achievements of George Washington.

The Nation Takes Shape, 1789-1837

Marcus Cunliffe, whom the Washington Post and Times Herald calls "a master historian capable of seeing his subject whole," has written a cogent and revealing study of America's first half-century under the federal Constitution. Bounded by the first Washington Administration and the last Jackson Administration, this is the period in which democracy grew and shaped the nation. It witnessed the launching of the federal government; the expansion of the frontier; the establishment of a party system; the enunciation of a foreign policy; the manufacture of the symbols of nationalism; and the forging of the arguments of sectionalism. Most important, Mr. Cunliffe writes, "the American character seems to have been formed in essence within a generation of George Washington's accession to the Presidency." "An urbane, stimulating, and admirably proportioned analysis. . . ."—Alexander DeConde, Wisconsin Magazine of History "What [Mr. Cunliffe] has done is to weave together and show the fertile interplay of the American dream and the American reality—and show how much the dream modified the reality. . . . an acute and elegant performance."—Times Literary Supplement

In search of America

This wide ranging selection of essays by a renowned English scholar explores American history, literature, and culture. Many aspects and periods of American history, life, and thought are examined: military, political, biographical, comparative, and more. The text is scholarly, yet readable. The essays cover the young nation, George Washington, European attitudes toward the United States and vice versa, anti-Americanism, and American writers. This work is invaluable as supplemental reading for courses in American history, American literature, and American studies. In Search of America devotes an entire section to the early problems of the young nation in achieving intellectual and artistic, as well as political, independence. Military, biographical, and other aspects of George Washington provide thought-provoking material. The temperament and talent of American writers, including Stephen Crane, Henry Adams, and Willa Cather are considered.
