Framing U.S. History

Framing U.S. History

Democracy, Nationalism, and Socialism

(p.236) Nine Framing U.S. History
Rethinking American History in a Global Age

Robert Wiebe

University of California Press

This chapter focuses on the issues of democracy, nationalism, and socialism, which are Atlantic-wide and not strictly national. The discussion compares these three concepts within the context of the United States and as part of a larger social history of the Atlantic world. The author views nationalism, socialism, and democracy as different ways to organize the solidarities of a society. These are made important by huge social and demographic transformations, including migrations and population increase.

Keywords:   democracy, nationalism, socialism, social history, solidarities, social transformations, demographic transformations
