A revealing perspective on the men who invented America. Spanning the most crucial decades of the country''s birth, from 1772 to 1792, Rakove uses the stories of famous (and not-so-famous) men to capture the intensely creative period of the Republic''s founding.
Historian Jack Rakove takes a fresh view of the exalted founding fathers, seeing Washington, Jefferson, Adams as, first, men of accomplishment--solid citizens who were drawn into the storm of rebellion, and whose skills were up to the task. Rakove provides portraits of lesser-knowns as well a the usual suspects who populate these accounts.

"[E]legantly written....Part collective biography, part narrative history of the years 1773 to 1792, REVOLUTIONARIES adeptly explores the factors that led these remarkable men to reject British sovereignty and create a new nation." - Virginia DeJohn Anderson 07/25/2010
