9780807871980: Passion Is the Gale: Emotion, Power, and the Coming of the American Revolution (Published by the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and the University of North Carolina Press)

At the outset of the eighteenth century, many British Americans accepted the notion that virtuous sociable feelings occurred primarily among the genteel, while sinful and selfish passions remained the reflexive emotions of the masses, from lower-class whites to Indians to enslaved Africans. Yet by 1776 radicals would propose a new universal model of human nature that attributed the same feelings and passions to all humankind and made common emotions the basis of natural rights. In Passion Is the Gale, Nicole Eustace describes the promise and the problems of this crucial social and political transition by charting changes in emotional expression among countless ordinary men and women of British America.

From Pennsylvania newspapers, pamphlets, sermons, correspondence, commonplace books, and literary texts, Eustace identifies the explicit vocabulary of emotion as a medium of human exchange. Alternating between explorations of particular emotions in daily social interactions and assessments of emotional rhetoric's functions in specific moments of historical crisis (from the Seven Years War to the rise of the patriot movement), she makes a convincing case for the pivotal role of emotion in reshaping power relations and reordering society in the critical decades leading up to the Revolution. As Eustace demonstrates, passion was the gale that impelled Anglo-Americans forward to declare their independence--collectively at first, and then, finally, as individuals.

Book Description:

"Nicole Eustace turns a world we thought we knew upside down. Narrating the dynamic development of eighteenth-century sensibilities about emotion, Eustace introduces us to people who believed that the surest path to individual improvement and social progress lay in endless conversations between their hearts and their minds. Passion was a gale that blew for good as well as ill, often at the same time."--Andrew Cayton, Miami University of Ohio

From the Inside Flap:

Analyzing the role of emotions in social and political interactions during the pivotal years of debate on the organization of society and the regulation of the self that culminated in the American Revolution, Eustace argues that emotional expression had a causal role in the social transformations of 18th-century British America.
