Mark Power Smith examines how mid-nineteenth-century European liberal nationalist movements affected United States’ nationalism(s), especially as configured by the Young America bloc of the Democratic Party. Smith finds that Europeans' embrace of "'more interventionist forms of liberalism,' such as socialism, or abolitionism, 'made popular resistance to interventionism a conservative, rather than radical force.'"
