Revolutionary in Exile: The Emigration of Joseph Priestley to America, 1794-1804: Transactions, American Philosophical Society (vol. 85, part 2)
Jenny Graham (au)
In 1794, approximately 10,000 persons emigrated from Europe, especially England, to the U.S. Many of them played an active role in the English radical movement that developed in the French revolutionary era -- which for many of them was the immediate cause of their flight to America -- & were a vital component in the emergence of the philosophy that came to be known as Jeffersonian Republicanism. This study examines in detail the career of one who was arguably the most prominent of all the political exiles from England at this time, the radical scientist, theologian, & political philosopher, Joseph Priestley.
