Description
The winner of the Bancroft Prize, the Emerson Prize, and the Pulitzer Prize for his histories of the American Revolution and the early republic, as well as the National Humanities Medal, Gordon Wood explains here why the Revolution remains the most significant event in our history, bar none. More than almost any other nation in the world, the United States began as an idea, and we have had to continually return to our nation's founding to understand who we are. In a series of elegant and illuminating essays, Wood explores our founding ideals, from ancient Rome to the European Enlightenment, and considers how radical the founders' attempts to create a virtuous republic of yeoman farmers truly was.

"Gordon S. Wood is more than an American historian. He is almost an American institution. Wood has done more than anyone to make the era of the Revolution and early Republic into one of the liveliest periods in American history."NYTBR
