Over the next century, these ideasÂ—which came to be known as the Monroe Doctrine - provided the framework through which Americans understood and articulated their military and diplomatic role in the world. Hemispheric Imaginings demonstrates that the Monroe Doctrine was conceived and developed in relation to transatlantic literary narratives. Gretchen Murphy argues that fiction and journalism were crucial to popularizing and making sense of the DoctrineÂ’s contradictions, including the fact that it both drove and concealed U.S. imperialism. Revealing fiction and popular journalism as key arenas where such inconsistencies were challenged or obscured, Murphy highlights the major role writers played in shaping conceptions of the U.S. empire. Murphy juxtaposes close readings of novels and nonfiction texts. From uncovering the literary inspirations for the Monroe Doctrine itself to tracing visions of hemispheric unity and transatlantic separation in novels by Lydia Maria Child, Nathaniel Hawthorne, MarÃa Amparo Ruiz de Burton, Lew Wallace and Richard Harding Davis, she reveals the DoctrineÂ’s forgotten cultural history. In making a vital contribution to the effort to move American Studies beyond its limited focus on the United States, Murphy questions recent proposals to reframe the discipline in hemispheric terms. She warns that to do so risks replicating the Monroe DoctrineÂ’s proprietary claim to isolate the Americas from the rest of the world.Examines the key role that the spatial construct (embodied by the Monroe Doctrine) of the western hemisphere played in enabling and effacing U.S. empire.Â"Hemispheric Imaginings makes an articulate, original argument for the centrality of the Monroe Doctrine to the nineteenth-century imagination. Gretchen MurphyÂ’s exploration of the cultural influence of the Monroe Doctrine, above and beyond its political effects, is long overdue.Â"Â—Kirsten Silva Gruesz, author of Ambassadors of Culture: The Transamerican Origins of Latino Writing Â"In these times of increasing attention to imperialism, protectionism, and U.S. intervention around the world, Gretchen MurphyÂ’s study of the political and cultural articulations of the Monroe Doctrine is not only welcome but also important reading. Murphy provides an insightful genealogy of how a Â‘principleÂ’ first affirmed by James Monroe came to be a cornerstone of American diplomacy and military action; at the same time, she provides a model reading of how an ideological concept was developed and sustained.Â"Â—Susan Jeffords, author of Hard Bodies: Hollywood Masculinity in the Reagan Era Â"A solid and imaginative work. I believe historians especially will find that it opens new doors and posits new ways of looking at an old topic.Â"Â—Mark S. Joy, Canadian Journal of History Â"A novel and provocative thesis. . . . American Studies scholars will find much worth considering here.Â"Â—Amy S. Greenberg, The Americas Â"Murphy . . . throws down the gauntlet by declaring that diplomatic historians have deliberately excluded culture from their debate and view it as an Â‘unwelcome and irrational intrusionÂ’. She boldly launches such an incursion in her work. . . . While we may debate the applicability of particular cultural works or phenomena to.
