Review: The American Revolution: A History (Modern Library Chronicles #9)

Avis d'utilisateur  - Goodreads

Great primer for someone whose high school education took place in Canada; probably a good refresher for others. Succinct overview from pre-Revolutionary background to ratification of the Constitution by a scholar who wrote one of the definitive histories. I learned more than I care to admit. ;-) Consulter l'avis complet

It is not a long book but well organized and written. From independence to constitution, it refresh old history study. But it is very well balanced. Consulter l'avis complet
