Texte du rabat

Building on extensive archival research as well as insights from cultural geographers and theorists of nationhood, "Heartless Immensity" demonstrates that national expansion had a far more complicated, multi-faceted impact on antebellum American culture than has previously been recognized. The book argues that in order to understand the nation's shift from republic to empire as well as to understand American culture in a global context, it is first necessary to pay close attention to the processes by which the physical entity known as the United States came into being.
