By 1840, American politics was a paradox-unprecedented freedom and equality for men of European descent, and the simultaneous isolation and degradation of people of African and Native American descent. Historians have characterized this phenomenon as the "white republic." Race and the Early Republic offers a rich account of how this paradox evolved, beginning with the fledgling nation of the 1770s and running through the antebellum years. The essays in the volume, written by a wide array of scholars, are arranged so as to allow a clear understanding of how and why white political supremacy came to be in the early United States. Race and the Early Republic is a collection of diverse, insightful and interrelated essays that promote an easy understanding of why and how people of color were systematically excluded from the early U.S. republic.

An important contribution to the ongoing debates... * Journal of the Early Republic * This is a book that should fill multiple niches. It could be used profitably in the classroom in courses on race, politics, the early republic, or the coming of the Civil War. It could also serve as an excellent bridge for political historians interested in learning more about contemporary race theory or for scholars in other disciplines looking for historical context for their studies. In any case, it is an accessible and rewarding read. * New York History *
