The problem for me is not only one of describing the past, but of coming to terms
with it. For this reason, everything I here offer the reader is closer to personal
confession than to scholarly analysis. Those indifferent to historical reflection and
inclined to think that "facts are facts and the rest is belles lettres," as one great
Russian poet used to say, can quietly skip this subsection. One cannot come to
terms with the fall from grace of a nation without coming to terms with it in one's
self. In me ...

Every nation faces challenges in coming to terms with these forces. In Britain,
these difficulties are compounded by the long history of Empire in which many
ordinary British people automatically associated British values with progress,
justice, mutual tolerance and fair play. Postcolonial Britain is a nation in which

n January 1815 Harrison Gray Otis left Hartford, Connecticut, for Washington,
D.C. Having spent several weeks in Hartford discussing with his Federalist
colleagues their opposition to the present war with England, he now carried the
convention report to President Madison. The president, and the nation, waited
uneasily for this report. New En- glanders had opposed the war at its inception in
1812, and their opposition had intensified as their trade was proscribed and their

To do so requires understanding the continued resonance of the nation in a
globalized world and the role of key individuals—cultural intermediaries, media
professionals, politicians, celebrity performers—in the active constitution of
national culture. From that juncture, Iturn to the initial 'knee-jerk' reactions to 9/11,
highlighting the important relationships among sport, television, and the state in (
re)defining the nation, coming to terms with 9/11, providing 'official'
understandings and ...

296 For this author, the United States of America is indeed a grand noble idea
that has been on a journey to be a dynamic experiment ground to create a
unique civilization embedded with the promise to grant inalienable rights for the
children of Adam from the four corners of the world. The nation has been
gradually coming to terms with the dark portion of its past history to a moment of
reckoning a new kingdom of Adam where every citizen of the land is guaranteed
the right for life, ...

On one level it appeared that we, as a nation, were finally coming to terms with
the ways in which children were being used by their parents as receptacles in
which to discard the worst remnants of their own childhoods. On another level,
however, there is a note of hysteria in the protest and the outrage, somewhat out
of proportion to the extent of, and long history of, the problem of child abuse. It
