Transatlantic Ambivalences: Studies in 18th to 20th Century Social and Intellectual History

Studien zur Sozial- und Ideengeschichte des 18. bis 20. Jahrhunderts

Close transatlantic relations are no longer taken for granted. Paul Nolte examines the causes of this change and, along the way, analyzes the basic structures of Western modernity from the early modern era until today: revolutionary movements, the creation of the market society, and the origins of republicanism and democracy. His analysis adds historical depth to our snapshot images of German-American relations.
Furnishes a long-term perspective on the history of transatlantic relations, revealing the origins of the market society and republican government
