Reviews

A work of monumental scope. [Horsman] has permanently changed the accepted scholarly understanding of racial Anglo-Saxonism.--Reviews in American History
The most lucidly written, comprehensive portrayal of antebellum racial thought to date.--The Yale Review
The book offers an insightful perspective stressing the unity of racist thought... Well written and organized, Race and Manifest Destiny confronts an important subject in western history, yet never loses sight of the broader themes of the American past.--Western Historical Quarterly
A well-documented, in-depth study of antebellum racial thought which challenges the older view of historians that racial Anglo-Saxonism was not intellectually ascendant in American thought before the Civil War... A very important contribution.--Indiana Magazine of History
