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 coastal towns came under attack. By 1815

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

to terms with democracy. Maruyama's methodology is a major contribution to
democratic theory. In a sense his methodology represents the affinity between
liberal and Marxist approaches to the role of the subject in history. The

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,

of proportion to the extent of, and long history of, the problem of child abuse. It
seems that we need to raise another question: Why now? Why did it take so long
to bring to ...
