Cultus Americanus: Varieties of the Liberal Tradition in American Political Culture, 1600-1865
Lexington Books, 2006 - 305 strani
Cultus Americanus applies a philosophical model of political culture as ideology, religion, and myth to a re-consideration of America's liberal consensus to explain cultural diversity in America. Applying this model to the formative years of American political culture from 1600-1865 demonstrates that American diversity exists within a single, coherent cultural universe, dominated by a liberal ideology that is informed and supported by both a unique American religiosity and a vibrant American mythology. Author Brent Gilchrist engagingly depicts a political culture that is more complex and more cohesive than has been previously maintained that will be of great interest to scholars and students of American politics and history.
