This book relates how an aristocratic discourse on American Indians took shape in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Titled and educated European visitors to North America, with the background of the French Revolution in mind, developed a new belief in their affinity with the warrior elites of Indian societies. Aristocratic encounters is a contribution to a burgeoning transatlantic, and even transnational, form of historical writing; it moves across national boundaries to ask how Europeans understood cultures vastly different from their own. Aristocratic encounters: European travelers and North American Indians. Cambridge University Press. Cambridge University Press. Aristocratic encounters: European travelers and North American by: Bourgeois and Aristocratic Cultural Encounters in Garden Art, – offers an unparalleled opportunity to discover how complex relationships between bourgeois and aristocrats have led to developments in garden art from the Renaissance into the Industrial Revolution, irrespective of stylistic differences. These essays show how garden creation has contributed to the blurring of social boundaries and to the ongoing redefinition of the bourgeoisie and the aristocracy.
