Beschrijving

This is the only modern political biography of De Witt Clinton (1769-1828) which spans his entire career. The study places his career within the context of sectional politics and the ideological debate over republicanism. In particular, De Witt Clinton and the American Political Economy demonstrates that a "practical republicanism" characterized Clinton's approach to politics. Refuting a traditional republican tenet, he believed commerce, manufacturing, and agriculture were equally important for the economic growth and prosperity of New York and the nation. Clinton's reinterpreted republicanism primarily developed from the special social and economic conditions of New York and was at variance with the "country" ideology of southern Republicans.

Recensie

"We have long needed an up-to-date study on De Witt Clinton. Siry's book, in large measure, meets this need. By placing his career in a framework of 'modified Republicanism', Siry gives us a better understanding why Clinton's contemporaries ranked him in the same league with Daniel Webster and Henry Clay." (Gene D. Lewis, University of Cincinnati)
"...an admirably researched, well written and long overdue look at this important New Yorker. Indeed, this book offers fine insights into, and analysis of, the political and ideological dimensions of the economic struggles of this period." (Thomas S. Wermuth, New York History)
