Publisher Comments:

American Expansionism surveys the history of U.S. territorial expansion from the end of the American Revolution until the beginning of the American Civil War in 1860. Besides ¿foreign¿ expansion such as the Louisiana Purchase and the acquisition of the lands of the Mexican cession, the book also covers the ¿internal¿ expansion as American settlers moved west. Issues covered include:
  • the definition of the U.S.-Canada border and the border between U.S. territory and Spanish territory in the Southwest
  • U.S. government land sales policy
  • the government¿s policy of removing the Indians from the eastern United States to the region west of Mississippi

The author also addresses some important questions about the concept of Manifest Destiny. For example, if nineteenth-century Americans thought that the expansion of the U.S. was ¿manifest¿, then why was there significant opposition to almost every incident of expansionism? Key themes from the most recent historiographical trends in the interpretation of the subject have also been incorporated.

American Expansionism, 1783-1860

provides students with an invaluable accessible introduction to the subject, with key documents from the time period and learning aids such as a glossary, who¿s who, chronology and guide for further reading.

Synopsis:

This new Seminar Study surveys the history of U.S. territorial expansion from the end of the American Revolution until 1860.
The book explores the concept of 'manifest destiny' and asks why, if expansion was 'manifest', there was such opposition to almost every expansionist incident. Paying attention to key themes often overlooked - Indian removal and the US government land sales policy, the book looks at both 'foreign' expansion such as the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and the war with Mexico in the 1840s and 'internal' expansion as American settlers moved west .
Finally, the book addresses the most recent historiographical trends in the subject and asks how Americans have dealt with the expansionist legacy.
