David Library Fall Lecture Series Wednesday Dec.13th at 7:30 pm

Wednesday, December 13 at 7:30 PM: “The Expanding Blaze: How the American Revolution Ignited the World, 1775-1848,” a lecture by Jonathan Israel.  A vast amount has been written, from many different points of view, about the fundamental importance of the American Revolution in the formation and subsequent history of the United States. “In stark contrast, almost nothing has been written, and very little is generally known among the public, about the fundamental importance of the American Revolution outside the United States,” says Jonathan Israel, the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Studies.  His new book, The Expanding Blaze: How the American Revolution Ignited the World, 1775-1848, portrays the Revolution as a global inspiration and formative agent, especially in Europe, Canada, Southern Africa and the Spanish Americas.
