Synopsis
Exploring the dark and bloody ground of the American frontier around the time of the struggle for independence, Patrick Griffin's American Leviathan unearths a story of backcountry revolution. While the colonies to the east waged a war for freedom from British rule, the scene in the Ohio Valley was far more chaotic, and far bloodier. Between 1763 and 1795, colonial settlers, imperial powers, and Indians vied for influence and control in a brutally Hobbesian world that was tamed only by the expulsion of the Indians and the establishment of an American nation.

American Leviathan: Empire, Nation, and Revolutionary Frontier

by Patrick Griffin

Estimated delivery 3-12 business days

Format Paperback

Condition Brand New

The dark and bloody ground of the frontier during the years of the American Revolution created much that we associate with the idea of America. Between 1763 and 1795, westerners not only participated in a war of independence but also engaged in a revolution that ushered in fundamental changes in the relationship between individuals and society. In the West, the process was stripped down to its essence: uncertainty, competition, disorder, and frenzied and contradictory attempts to reestablish order. The violent nature of the contest to reconstitute sovereignty produced a revolutionary settlement, riddled with what we would regard as paradox, in which new notions of race went hand in hand with new definitions of citizenship. In the almost Hobbesian state of nature that the West had become, westerners created a liberating yet frightening vision of what society was to be. In vivid detail, Patrick Griffin recaptures a chaotic world of settlers, Indians, speculators, British regulars, and American and state officials vying with one another to remake the American West during its most formative period.
