Published November 24th 1997 by Omohundro Institute and University of North Carolina Press (first published November 1st 1997). Waldstreicher covers the development of American nationalism during the early republic, but he does so not by examining nationalist ideology. Instead, he looks at the culture of public ritual and celebration of nationalism to get a sense of how early Americans practiced, utilized, and sometimes co-opted nationalism. He believes that this perspective gives us a much less abstract and more grounded view of early American nationalism. I have to say I was a bit disappointed with this book.

Pp. ix + 364 and illustrations. In his view, the slogan for early American nationalists might well have been "think nationally, act globally. Scholars of nationalism have long been interested in determining its origins: at what point in a nation's history, and for what reasons, do individuals begin to see themselves as members of a greater collectivity that exists over and above their own local community?

In this innovative study, David Waldstreicher investigates the importance of political festivals in the early American republic. Drawing on newspapers, broadsides, diaries, and letters, he shows how patriotic celebrations and their reproduction in a rapidly expanding print culture helped connect local politics to national identity. Waldstreicher reveals how Americans worked out their political differences in creating a festive calendar. Using the Fourth of July as a model, members of different political parties and social movements invented new holidays celebrating such events as the ratification of the Constitution, Washington's birthday, Jefferson's inauguration, and the end of the slave trade. They used these politicized rituals, he argues, to build constituencies and to make political arguments on a national scale. While these celebrations enabled nonvoters to participate intimately in the political process and helped dissenters forge effective means of protest, they had their limits as vehicles of democratization or modes of citizenship, Waldstreicher says. Exploring the interplay of region, race, class, and gender in the development of a national identity, he demonstrates that an acknowledgment of the diversity and conflict inherent in the process is crucial to any understanding of American politics and culture.

I thought that it would be more on the parties, but it wasn't, so I was disappointed. I did get a little info, but only out of one paragraph.

Waldstreicher is a fantastic writer who crafts a masterpiece of American history. It takes more than a revolution to make a nation and Waldstreciher clearly demonstrates how diverse peoples with divergent interests formed a shared sense of nationalism.
