REVOLUTIONARIES A New History of the Invention of America

by | Read by Bronson Pinchot

History • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

The author starts with the story of John Adams, a lawyer of modest career goals who became president through his role in the Revolutionary War. His story sets the tone for this retelling of the revolution as Rakove considers Adams's reluctance to join the political fray. Bronson Pinchot's reading is low-key but effective in capturing the ideas and personalities of familiar revolutionaries such as George Washington and those lesser known such as John Dickinson. Much of the book may sound familiar; it could serve as a textbook on the American Revolution. However, the emphasis on people as Rakove discusses issues such as enlisting black soldiers and setting the powers of government is fresh.
