9780195132243: The American Revolution: A History in Documents (Pages from History)

The American Revolution vividly illustrates through a collection of fascinating primary documents how, in the space of a few hundred years, contented colonists -- the majority of whom were transplanted English citizens -- would form an independent country that could challenge the greatest world power of the time -- and win. The American Revolution explores the colonies' break with Great Britain, the resulting war to gain independence, and the struggle to create a successful government for the new United States. Steven C. Bullock turns to such documents as Common Sense, the Declaration of Independence, diaries, newspaper debates, slave petitions, and a pictorial essay on Paul Revere, showing that the words and actions of common men as well as great men played important roles in making the Revolution not just a coup d'État, but a genuine change that shook the foundations of authority and dramatically changed American society.

About the Author:


Stephen C. Bullock is Associate Professor of United States History at Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Review:


"Bullock succeeds quite well in making history important and vital to today....In the documents, one can see both famous players and the not so famous. John Adams is here, as well as Abigail Adams. Patrick Henry and Benjamin Rush play their part, as do Mercy Otis Warren and Benjamin Franklin....Bullock has managed to breathe new life into what for many are dry and dusty documents of a bygone time." -- American Reference Book Annual


"Diaries, newspaper debates, Tom Paine's Common Sense, slave petitions, and The Declaration of Independence are among the documents Bullock uses to anchor his account for high school students and general readers of the movement and war for independence that led to the U.S." -- Research & Reference Book News


"Innovative and admirable." -- Church History


"Interesting." -- Education Digest
