Description

As the American Revolution drew to a close, Revolutionary leaders sought to carve out a new, distinct national identity from the existing, repressive European powers—and an experiment began. The experiment was not one performed by scientists in the laboratory but rather one that took place in the crucible of American life. Gordon Wood’s Empire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic, 1789-1815 opens at the signing of the Constitution and traces this republican experiment through the conclusion of the War of 1812. Wood posits, “By 1815 Americans had experienced a transformation in the way they related to one another and in the way they perceived themselves and the world around them.”

We are pleased to offer this work as a special SIGNED deluxe leather bound edition.
