Summary:
Liberty and Liberticide focuses on the influence America exerted over the ideas and activities of nineteenth-century British radicals. While some looked on America as the model of liberty, others associated it with the destruction of liberty. Turner shows how British radicals' views about the United States and the course of Anglo-American relations shaped their domestic reform agenda and their assumptions about British political values and Britain's place in the world.
