Praise

“A group of unimpeachable assessments . . . A gem of a book, rich in understanding . . . A thoroughly urbane account of the provincial wellsprings of our nation’s life.” —The New York Times

“Seldom have . . . the American Founders . . . been celebrated with such depth and sophistication.” —The New York Review of Books

“In the great flood of books about the American Revolution . . . To Begin the World Anew occupies a place all its own. A closely argued exploration.” —The Washington Post Book World

“One of America’s most discerning historians. His thinking is subtle. His style is forceful. . . . Throughout he retains a sense of wonder that those men in a clump of distant British provinces could have wrought a political system, a view of the world, that is so imaginative and enduring.” —Los Angeles Times

“Deep, creative, brilliant, and provocative. In a word: dazzling.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
