Federalists in Dissent

Imagery and Ideology in Jeffersonian America
Linda K. Kerber

Convinced that the Federalists have not had a fair shake from Jefferson-worshipping historians, Linda K. Kerber sets out to refurbish their image by examining their rhetoric and ideology. Concentrating on the those Federalists who published orations, essays, and satirical literature, she examines their attitudes toward the arts, science, education, law, and the contemporary American social order.
