Gr 4-6-An agreeably unbiased presentation of both sides of the American Revolution. Kent maintains a balanced tone throughout, and in so doing describes aspects of the conflict that may surprise students. More than the litany of usual names and events (Jefferson, Paine, the Boston Tea Party, etc.), she discusses the estrangement between Benjamin Franklin and his Loyalist son William, and the atrocities committed by both sides. Unfortunately, the book is marred by maps that are fuzzy and hard to read and an index that inexplicably fails to include such key entries as the House of Burgess, John Paul Jones, and Mohawk chief Joseph Brant. Black-and-white reproductions, some of which are poor in quality, appear throughout. Despite these shortcomings, The American Revolution will be a suitable addition to library shelves.- Anita Palladino, Finkelstein Memorial Library, Spring Valley, NY
