Take a front row seat in Professor Joseph Ellis's class on the founding of the United States and listen to him discuss the origins of the American Revolution, the short-lived Confederation government, and the "more perfect union" of the Constitution. Fourteen lively lectures illustrate U.S. history through the lives and viewpoints of famous Americans--Franklin, Adams, Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton, Madison--and Joseph Plumb Martin, a soldier in the Continental Army. This is a thoughtful and thought-provoking look at the origins of the United States, and listening to Professor Ellis is like auditing your favorite professor's course in college. People wanting to fully savor the classroom experience can join the online course discussion and even take a final exam. J.D.P. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
