Emma Macleod's Newest Book

Emma Macleod, my second doctoral supervisor at the University of Stirling, informed me that her next book is out, British Visions of America, 1775-1820. This monograph is in Pickering & Chatto's "Enlightenment World" series.

Here is the book's description:

In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries Britain’s perception of America varied between a set of colonies, a utopia, a market and an experiment. Macleod examines changing British conceptions of America across the political spectrum during a period of political, cultural and intellectual upheaval. These shifting perceptions are in evidence in the writings of political commentators including Samuel Johnson, Thomas Paine, John Gifford, William Cobbett and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

I look forward to reading it. Congratulations Emma!
