              The American Civil War in the Shaping of British Democracy

              When the American Civil War broke out in 1861, a central question for British intellectuals was whether or not the American conflict was proof of the viability of democracy as a foundation for modern governance. The lessons of the American Civil War for Britain would remain a foc...al point in the debate on democracy throughout the war up to the suffrage reform of 1867, and after. Brent E. Kinser considers four figures connected by Woodrow Wilson's concept of the Literary Politician, a person who, while possessing a profound knowledge of politics combined with an equally acute literary ability to express that knowledge, escapes the practical drudgeries of policy making. Kinser argues that the animosity of Thomas Carlyle towards democracy, the rhetorical strategy of Anthony Trollope's North America, the centrality of the American war in Walter Bagehot's vision of British governance, and the political philosophy of John Stuart Mill illustrate the American conflict's vital presence in the debates leading up to the 1867 reform, a legislative event that helped to secure democracy's place in the British political system.

              Thomas Carlyle's On Heroes, Hero Worship, and the Heroic in History considers how heroes are created and conveys his ideas on the importance of heroic leadership. In six reevaluative essays, the authors argue that Carlyle's concept of heroism actually repudiates its own authorita...rian roots and stresses the hero's spiritual dimension.

              Bon mots from one of the twentieth century's most beloved writers These impeccably chosen passages are a trenchant reminder that Margaret Rawlings is one of our country's greatest writers. Brent Kinser and Rodger Tarr have done an important service not only for Rawlings but also ...for American Literature. --Ron Rash, author of Burning Bright: Stories Rawlings's language is striking, vivid, compelling, precise, and moving. When readers leave the text, they take with them much to ponder and appreciate from Rawlings's lucid descriptions and movingly intriguing dialogue. --Veronica Makowsky, author of Caroline Gordon: A Biography Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (1896-1953) fished with Ernest Hemingway, got drunk with Thomas Wolfe, and dined with F. Scott Fitzgerald in Asheville, North Carolina, and with Eleanor Roosevelt in the White House. Robert Frost was a close friend, as was N. C. Wyeth. Born in Washington, D.C., educated at the University of Wisconsin, feted in Hollywood, she was one of the most prominent American writers of the first half of the twentieth century. For Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings's Cross Creek Sampler, Brent Kinser and Rodger Tarr, the foremost experts on the life and works of Rawlings, have selected a cornucopia of excerpts from the short fiction and novels written after her arrival in Florida in 1928, including her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Yearling, as well as her best-selling Cross Creek (neither of which has ever gone out of print). The selections illustrate her peculiar genius for describing locations and characters and reveal her unique understanding of the connections we all have with the natural world around us. Arranged thematically, the quotations demonstrate the literary power and beauty of this beloved author. Brent E. Kinser, associate professor of English at Western Carolina University, is coeditor of The Uncollected Writings of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and president of the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Society.
