    Here is a brisk, accessible, and vivid introduction to arguably the most important event in the history of the United States: the American Revolution. Between 1760 and 1800, the American people cast off British rule to create a new nation and a radically new form of government based on the idea that people have the right to govern themselves. In this lively account, Robert Allison provides a cohesive synthesis of the military, diplomatic, political, social, and intellectual aspects of the Revolution, paying special attention to the Revolution's causes and consequences.

    George says: "So concise, it's disjointed..."

    Story
    What would have made The American Revolution: A Concise History better?

    There was a great deal of detail around the revolution itself that was glossed-over, or left out... But then he spends an hour (nearly 25% of the book) dealing with the aftermath of the revolution, after the USA became independent.


    What could Robert Allison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Making it less a stream of facts, with a better sense of the characters involved.
