Print Technology in Scotland and America, 1740-1800

This book investigates the mediation of popular-political culture in Scotland and America, from the transatlantic religious revivals known as the Great Awakening to the U.S. presidential election of 1800. By focusing on Scotland and America, this book aims to increase our understanding of how tensions (ethnic, racial, economic, political, aesthetic, and religious) within these corresponding political and cultural arenas altered prints meaning and power as an instrument of empire and nation building.
