J. C. A. Stagg's essay, "The American Homefront, 1812-1815," was published in The Routledge Handbook to the War of 1812, edited by Donald R. Hickey and Connie D. Clark (New York, 2016), a collection of 19 essays on numerous aspects of the War of 1812. Professor Stagg's essay considers the question of whether and how the conflict "reshape[d] pre-war patterns of culture, economic activity, politics, and social structure in ways that produce[d] significant and long-lasting change."
