It's Monday, What are You Reading? Among the Powers of the Earth

Among the Powers of the Earth

Among the Powers of the Earth:
The American Revolution and the Making of a New World Empire,
by Eliga H. Gould

This post is the seventy-seventh entry for this meme suggested by Sheila@ One Persons Journey Through A World of Books. [Entries 22-25 in the series were posted at  the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories]

This was a book I received at Christmas off of my Amazon Wish List. I read it a little earlier, cover to cover, and just realized I did not post it here, as I should have... ;-)

Amazon Book Description:

In this reappraisal of the American Revolution, Eliga Gould argues that the nation's founding was far from a straightforward bid for liberty and independence. Even as Americans strove to be free from Old World imperialism, they sought the recognition of Europe's imperial powers--and the authority to become colonizers in their own right and rule a New World empire.

Earlier, I wrote this about this book:
You may find this of interest, to learn more about the book, and why I liked it so much.

Happy Reading!

Dr. Bill  ;-)
