The rise and fall of the white republic: class politics and mass culture in nineteenth-century America

Verso, 1990 - 397 páginas
In this acclaimed historical study. Alexander Saxton establishes the centrality of white racism to American politics and culture. Examining images of race at a popular level -- from blackface minstrelsy to the construction of the Western hero, from grassroots political culture to dime noveis -- as well as the philosophical constructions of the political elite, it is a powerful and comprehensive account of the ideological forces at work in the formation of modern America. Book jacket.
