Presents Francis Jeffrey's record of his journey between New York and Washington during the second Anglo-American War. This title contains his firsthand accounts of meetings with key figures of the new republic, including James Madison and James Monroe, which are remarkable insights into their ideas about the origins and nature of the conflict.



Her research interests lie in Transatlantic Literary Studies, Transnationalism and Transatlantic Romanticisms. Clare has published on William Blake, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman and is reviewer of American literature to 1900 for the Year's Work in English Studies. The long eighteenth century in Scotland is increasingly recognized as a period of outstanding cultural achievement. In these years both the Scottish Enlightenment and Scottish Romanticism made lasting contributions to Western intellectual and cultural life. This series is designed to further our understanding of this crucial era in a range of ways: by reprinting less familiar but important works by writers in the period itself; by producing new editions of key out-of-print books by modern scholars; and by publishing new research and criticism by contemporary scholars. Perspectives: Scottish Studies of the long Eighteenth Century Series Editor: Andrew Hook
