Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Summer 2011) what still needs to be done. Regarding the latter, scholars might consider more fully exploring the mechanics, accuracy, and extent of press coverage in the United States, the sometimes limited and fleeting quality of American concern, and how the failure of European revolutions shaped American thinking. There is also room for further discussion between those scholars whose emphasis is on the Atlantic and global context of American reactions and those focused on political and cultural conditions in the United States. As Roberts's Distant Revolutions exemplifies the latter approach, it can best be read alongside Thomas Bender's A Nation among Nations: America's Place in World History (New York, 2006), which stresses the broader currents of liberalism, nationalism, and state building in the nineteenth-century world. In what ways, we might ask, were American reactions to 1848 both exemplary of and exceptional within the nineteenth-century Atlantic? Da vid P rio r is a postdoctoral teaching fellow at the University of South Carolina. His research focuses on American engagement with national and international affairs immediately following the Civil War. The Fragile Fabric of Union: Cotton, Federal Politics, and the Global Origins of the Civil War.
