About the Author:

Miriam Greenblatt holds a B.A. in political science and economics from Hunter College in New York City and a teaching certificate from Spertus College, USA and performed graduate work in political science and economics at the University of Chicago. She is a freelance writer and has written or coauthored numerous books on history, including young adult biographies of John Quincy Adams and Franklin D. Roosevelt and history books at both the junior high and high school levels.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6 Up-An informative, thorough, and useful series entry. The first three chapters describe the political climate of the time and examine the weak peace agreement that marked the end of the American Revolution. The author notes that the controversy over the Canadian border and the issue of free trade were the primary reasons for the War of 1812. He also discusses daily life during this period and the sentiments of Americans-many were reluctant to enter another dispute with one of the most powerful military forces in the world, and Congress was clearly divided on the issue. The last four chapters cover the principal leaders, the major battles, and the turbulent peace process. While the book will primarily be utilized for school assignments, the inclusion of personal narratives makes for lively reading. Through them, readers experience the thoughts, fears, and triumphs of the people involved. The format and black-and-white illustrations are not as attractive as those in the ``America's Wars'' series (Lucent); however, Greenblatt's text is comprehensive and more accessible to students.-Ann M. Burlingame, North Regional Library, Raleigh, NC
