The Rise of English Nationalism
A Cultural History, 1740-1830Book - 1987
"The Rise of English Nationalism" is a tour de force reinterpretation of English history and culture in the era of King George III. Where historians have often seen England as having been bypassed by the phenomenom of nationalism, Newman, equally at home with history and literature, shows instead that England was probably the first modern country to experience it, and reveals its vibrations throughout English cultural, social, literary and political life. The result is a remarkable synthesis from a comprehensive new angle of vision, lucidly and often wittily written. Both armchair historian and serious scholar will enjoy "The Rise of English Nationalism."
