Rome Reborn on Western Shores: Historical Imagination and the Creation of the American Republic by Eran Shalev
English | 2009 | ISBN-10: 0813928338 | 328 pages | ePUB, MOBI | 1.2 MB

"Rome Reborn on Western Shores" examines the literature of the Revolutionary era to explore the ways in which American patriots employed the classics and to assess antiquity's importance to the early political culture of the United States. Where other writers have concentrated on political theory and ideology, Shalev demonstrates that classical discourse constituted a distinct mode of historical thought during the era, tracing the role of the classics from roughly 1760 to 1800 and beyond. His analysis shows how the classics provided a critical perspective on the management of the British Empire, a common fund of legitimizing images and organizing assumptions during the revolutionary conflict, a medium for political discourse in the process of state construction between 1776 and 1787, and a usable past once the Revolution was over.
