MEDIA REVIEWS

"Convinced that the Federalists have not had a fair shake from Jefferson-worshipping historians, Linda K. Kerber has set out to refurbish their image by examining their rhetoric and ideology. Concentrating on the 'articulate Federalists' (mostly New Englanders) who published orations, essays, and satirical literature, she examines their attitudes toward the arts, science, education, law, and the contemporary American social order. . . . Her analysis will remain an indispensable introduction to Federalist thought."-Journal of American History


"Kerber argues that the distinction between Federalists and Jeffersonians was as much cultural as political. . . . The well-documented study is based on a wide reading of contemporary pamphlets, newspapers, and correspondence."-American Historical Review


"Students of the early American period, especially those with an interdisciplinary perspective, will be interested in Kerber's revision of the Federalists' image and encouraged by the volume and quality of the original material investigated."-American Political Science Review


"The Federalist thinking that Kerber explores helps to give greater depth to the more familiar history of Federalist politics, and, beyond that, she brings more of the country to life."-Journal of American Studies
