Críticas:


"This is narrative history at its best, written in a conversational and engaging style.... A major revision and expansion of a popular history of the American Revolutionary period."--Library Journal


"A tour de force. Middlekauff has the admirable ability to capture historical truths in vivid images and memorable phrases.... Middlekauff's empathy enhances this massive book's cumulative power. The cause was glorious; the book is too."--Dennis Drabelle, Washington Post Book World


"The reader in search of a wide-ranging overview of the Revolution would be better off turning to any number of earlier books (from Trevelyan's classic 'American Revolution' to more recent works like 'The Glorious Cause' by Robert Middlekauff)."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times, in a review of 1776


Acclaim for the First Edition:
"One of the best one-volume accounts of the Revolutionary war."--The New York Times
"A striking success. Middlekauff is both elegant and eloquent. Whether he is describing the making of British policy, or sketching the character of Washington or Pitt, or explaining why Daniel Morgan positioned the American troops at Hannah's Cowpens so retreat would be impossible, he does in a few paragraphs or pages what others might struggle through a chapter to get right."--The New Republic
"A first-class narrative history. There is probably no history of the Revolution that better combines a full account of the military course of the war with consideration of all the other forces shaping the era." --The Philadelphia Inquirer


"Middlekauff's energy and clarity often make us read as eagerly as if we did not know how this struggle will come out."--The New Yorker
"Writing with a grace and clarity that recall Samuel Eliot Morison, Middlekauff gives us classic entry into the critical period of American history." --The Los Angeles Times
"His narrative account goes along at a fast pace. He moves with agility from prof

Beginning w/ the French and Indian War & continuing to the election of George Washington as first president, Robert Middlekauff offers a panoramic history of the conflict between England & America, highlighting the drama & anguish of the colonial struggle for independence. Combining the political & the personal, he provides a compelling account of the key events that precipitated the war, from the Stamp Act to the Tea Act, tracing the gradual gathering of American resistance that culminated in the Boston Tea Party & "the shot heard 'round the world." The heart of the book features a vivid description of the 8-year-long war, w/ gripping accounts of battles & campaigns, ranging from Bunker Hill & Washington's crossing of the Delaware to the brilliant victory at Hannah's Cowpens & the final triumph at Yorktown, paying particular attention to what made men fight in these bloody encounters. The book concludes w/ an insightful look at the making of the Constitution in the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 & the struggle over ratification. Through it all, Middlekauff gives the reader a vivid sense of how the colonists saw these events & the importance they gave to them. Common soldiers & great generals, Sons of Liberty & African slaves, town committee-men & representatives in congress -- all receive their due. And there are particularly insightful portraits of such figures as Sam & John Adams, James Otis, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, & many others. This new edition has been revised & expanded, w/ fresh coverage of topics such as mob reactions to British measures before the War, military medicine, women's role in the Revolution, American Indians, the different kinds of war fought by the Americans & the British, & the ratification of the Constitution. The book also has a new epilogue & an updated bibliography. The cause for which the colonists fought, liberty & independence, was glorious indeed. Here is an equally glorious narrative of an event that changed the world, capturing the profound and passionate struggle to found a free nation. * Robert Middlekauff is Preston Hotchkis Professor of American History Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley. The winner of a Bancroft Prize for 'The Mathers', he was Harmsworth Professor of American History at Oxford University & also served as Director of the Huntington Library, Art Gallery, & Botanical Gardens. * The Oxford History of the United States is the most respected multi-volume history of our nation. The series includes 3 Pulitzer Prize winners, a New York Times bestseller, & winners of the Bancroft & Parkman Prizes. The Atlantic Monthly has praised it as "the most distinguished series in American historical scholarship," a series that "synthesizes a generation's worth of historical inquiry & knowledge into one literally state-of-the-art book." Conceived under the general editorship of C. Vann Woodward & Richard Hofstadter, & now under the editorship of David M. Kennedy, this renowned series blends social, political, economic, cultural, diplomatic, & military history into coherent & vividly written narrative. Nº de ref. de la librería 007761
