It’s that time of year again – when we in the United States celebrate those men who committed (in the immortal words of Nicholas Cage) high treason against the King of England. In their honor, in honor of the fourth and in lieu of the ubiquitous fireworks image – here are 4 non-fiction books about the Great Republic that have lingered on my TBR pile despite the fact that I’ve been dying to read them. (International Lit, you are a harsh mistress!). Click on the covers to find out more.

These look awesome! Thanks for bringing them to my attention, as I’m not as “with it” with nonfic as I am fiction.
Hi Jenn! The McDougall book is the second in a series he’s writing. The first dealt with the colonial, revolutionary and federalist periods. It was very interesting – he has a humorous take on American history, basing his writing on the premise that we are a nation of “hustlers”. Hope you had a happy 4th!
