    In this stirring book, the acclaimed, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian ('Truman,' 'John Adams') tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence - when the whole American cause was riding on their success, without which all hope for independence would have dissolved. The darkest hours of that tumultuous year were as dark as any Americans have known. The book is testimony to how much is owed to a rare few in that brave founding epoch. Illus., 48 b&w photographs. 400p.

    Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, '1776' is a powerful drama written with extraordinary narrative vitality. It is the story of Americans in the ranks, of every shape, size, and color, farmers, schoolteachers, shoemakers, no-accounts, and mere boys turned soldiers. It is the story of the King's men, the British commander, William Howe and the redcoats' contempt. Here also is the Revolution as experienced by American Loyalists, Hessian mercenaries, politicians, preachers, traitors, spies, men and women of all kinds caught in the paths of war, in its most dramatic year. A year of revolutionary declaration. Addenda. Color plates. 386p. Kindle Price: $13.99

    On January 9, 1776, an obscure recent immigrant named Thomas Paine published a small pamphlet of only '46 sheets' that would prove a paradigmatic shift of the political landscape, which in turn altered the course of American history. Paine's 'Common Sense' passionately argued the cause for American independence, changing minds, stirring emotions, and spreading like wildfire and gaining a groundswell of popular support as it went. The present study captures the essence of Paine's work and its impact on this pivotal time in America's founding. Notes, bibliography, index. 174p.

    "The founding generation feared partisan conflict, and Richard Buel shows why. No previous writer has so persuasively illuminated the inextricable connections between divisions over foreign policy and partisan political alignments during a period of revolutionary instability and change throughout the Atlantic world. After Jefferson's election, Federalists who had struggled so hard to secure the success of the American experiment during the 1790s jeopardized the union's survival as they sought to regain power on the national level and preserve their tenuous control in New England. America on the Brink is an important contribution to our understanding of the founding of the American federal republic. Buel's fine book represents political history at its very best."--Peter Onuf, Thomas Jefferson Foundation, Professor of History, University of Virginia"Buel's keen analysis of the partisan battle between Federalists and Jeffersonians argues powerfully that prominent Massachusetts leaders aimed to subvert the United States government during the War of 1812. This fresh, clearheaded, and masterful narrative reveals the intricate political maneuvers of politicians and statesmen during a perilous era."--Richard D. Brown, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of History and Director, University of Connecticut Humanities Institute Department of History"In this carefully researched and vigorously argued account of America's least understood war, Richard Buel offers a searching critique of the political motives that placed Federalist leaders in Massachusetts and Connecticut at loggerheads with the national government. Artfully surveying the realms of politics and diplomacy from an avowedly Republican perspective, Buel closely examines the political rhetoric, partisan calculations, and internal divisions of both parties, and explains how these in turn affected and impaired the conduct of the war. In doing so, he makes a potent case for taking seriously the depth of Federalist animosity toward Republican policies and the extent to which opposition to the war went beyond non-compliance with national measures to countenance the collapse of the new American nation-state. Not every student of the war may accept his conclusions, but his argument supports a critical reappraisal of a seemingly disloyal opposition."--Jack Rakove, Stanford University

    Before the American Revolution established a United States of America, ordinary men and women -mostly farm families living in small communities- mobilized against imperial authority through insurgency. In'American Insurgents, American Patriots,' T.H. Breen draws on a wealth of overlooked documents to tell the captivating story of these everyday men and women and their primacy to American independence. Spurred by a deep sense of betrayal, religious conviction, and renewed purpose, they launched a violent attack against Britain, risking everything in the process. This is the gripping story of the tens of thousands of citizens whose insurgency helped form America.

    "Before there could be a revolution, there was a rebellion; before patriots, there were insurgents. Challenging decades of received wisdom, T.H. Breen's strikingly original book explains how ordinary Americans-- most of them members of farm families living in small communities-- were drawn into a successful insurgency against imperial authority. This is the compelling story of our national political origins that most Americans do not know. It is a story of rumor, charity, vengeance, and restraint. American insurgents, American patriots reminds us that revolutions are violent events. They provoke passion and rage, a willingness to use violence to achieve political ends, a deep sense of betrayal, and a strong religious conviction that God expects an oppressed people to defend their rights. The American Revolution was no exception."--Book jacket.

    Here, Patrick Giffin unearths a story of backcountry revolution. While the colonies to the east waged a war for freedom from British rule, the scene in the Ohio Valley was far more chaotic, and far bloodier. Between 1763 and 1795, colonial settlers, imperial powers, and Indians vied for influence and control in a brutally Hobbesian world that was tamed only by the explusion of the Indians and the establishment of an American nation. AMERICAN LEVIATHIAN recounts the revolution as it happened in the West, telling of the rise and fall of Britain's North American colonies, the birth of a new nation, and the violence and competition that bridged the two. Notes, Index. 368p.
