The Unknown American Revolution: The Unruly Birth of Democracy and the Struggle to Create America

By Gary B Nash
In this audacious recasting of the American Revolution, distinguished historian Gary Nash offers a profound new way of thinking about the struggle to create this country, introducing readers to a coalition of patriots from all classes and races of American society. From millennialist preachers to enslaved Africans, disgruntled women to aggrieved Indians, the people so vividly portrayed in this book did not all agree or succeed, but during the exhilarating and messy years of this country's birth, they laid down ideas that have become part of our inheritance and ideals toward which we still strive today.


    REVIEW QUOTES
"Tightly though densely written, this expertly researched tome shakes the "stainless steel" history of the American Revolution to its core." --Publishers Weekly

"You will never think about the Revolution in the same way." --Alfred F. Young, author of Masquerade: The Life and Times of Deborah Sampson, Continental Soldier

"What Nash does in The Unknown American Revolution is dislodge the founding fathers to give the dynamism of urban craftsmen, slaves, 'dockside tars, ' and 'club-wielding farmers' a more prominent place in the history of the movement." --The Boston Globe
