Críticas:

"In this eloquent book, Robert Gross gives us a Concord that we have not encountered before, a surprising place that turns out to be not the quaint community of myth and legend, but a lively society, deeply engaged in the great issues of its revolutionary time--with all the tensions, anxieties, and aspirations that human being share."--Linda K. Kerber
""The Minutemen and Their World" makes the American Revolution live--a vivid, compelling book that dramatizes the political consciousness and armed conflict in the very birthplace of the Revolutionary War. Few books have so brilliantly stood the test of time."--Jon Butler
"For historians, "The Minutemen and Their World "was a shot heard round the world. It taught us that fine history combines good scholarlship with good writing. Its reverberations are still being heard."--Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
""The Minutemen and Their World" is a classic in--well, the classic sense of the world: a book of such enduring elegance and interest that it will find a readership in every generation."--Joyce Appleby
"A richly detailed picture of social life and social divisions in Concord, and a lively narrative of the coming of the Revolution there."--Edmund S. Morgan, "The New York Review of Books"
"This lovely little book captures, intimately and authentically, the life of an eighteenth century New England town . . . gloriously good."--Michael Zuckerman, University of Pennsylvania

Descripción Hill and Wang, 2001. Soft cover. Condición: New. 1st Edition. "This lovely little book is what the new local history is all about. It captures, intimately and authentically, the life of an eighteenth-century New England town, and it conveys, effectively and ingeniously, the entanglement of that life in the surge of stirring events of a wider world beyond its borders. In its narrative vibrancy and synthetic sweep, it is, I think, the most suggestive and satisfying of the case studies of colonial communities. In its originality, its compassion, and its sensitivity to the irony of human endeavor, it is, I believe, the beginning of a brilliant career of a major American historian. It's a gloriously good book." - Michael Zuckerman, University of Pennsylvania . - "This book is a pleasure to read-so much so that one may easily miss the monumental research upon which it rests. The author has successfully brought new methods to the solution of an old historical problem. In his careful study of a single American community, he has developed for the first time a sustained and convincing interpretation of the American Revolution as a social movement. The argument will not, of course, command agreement in all its intricate details, but it will be read and respected for a very long time. 'The Minutemen and Their World' is likely to be one of the few enduring works . " - David Hackett Fischer, Warren Professor of History, Brandeis University.

Descripción Hill Wang Inc.,U.S., United States, 2001. Paperback. Condición: New. 25th Twenty-Fifth Anniversary ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Winner of the Bancroft Prize The Minutemen and Their World, first published in 1976, is reissued now in a twenty-fifth anniversary edition with a new Foreword by Alan Taylor and a new Afterword by the author. On April 19, 1775, the American Revolution began at the Old North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts. The shot heard round the world catapulted this sleepy New England town into the midst of revolutionary fervor, and Concord went on to become the intellectual capital of the new republic. The town--future home to Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne--soon came to symbolize devotion to liberty, intellectual freedom, and the stubborn integrity of rural life. In The Minutemen and Their World, Robert Gross has written a remarkably subtle and detailed reconstruction of the lives and community of this special place, and a compelling interpretation of the American Revolution as a social movement.
