Reforming the World synopsis
Reforming the world provides a sophisticated account of how and why, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, American missionaries and moral reformers worked abroad at an unprecedented rate and magnitude. In view of various organizations such as the YMCA and the student volunteer movement of foreign missions, Ian Terrell describes the impact of the export of American values and explores the methods and networks used by reformers to design a global and non-regional model.
The Empire. It follows the cross-border American response to domestic pressures, European colonies, and dynamic changes in the global community. By examining the cultural context of American expansion from the 1870s to the 2020s, Terrell introduces a new interpretation of evangelical evangelical Christian work and addresses America's use of soft power.
He describes the impact of evangelical reform on US colonial and diplomatic policy, underscores the limits of that influence, and documents the mysterious personal histories, aspirations, and cultural heritage of moral reformers such as Margaret and Mary Leach, Louis Klubach, Clara Barton and Ida. Wells.
The book shows that moral reform affected the United States as much as it did with the colonial and semi-colonial peoples that the Americans were in contact with, and formed the structure of American dealings with the world of great empires until Woodrow Wilson. To realize the widespread and diverse impact of evangelical reform movements, world reform determines how transnational regulation has played a vital role in America's political and economic expansion..
