My interpretation of this book
When I first began to read The Birth of the Republic I found it very hard to keep up with Morgan¿s writing style. It is not easy reading for the average person. Each sentence is vital in understanding his interpretation of the American Revolution. I found myself reading, re-reading, and stopping to think about what it was Morgan was saying for the first three or four chapters until I eventually became familiar with his style. He packs a great wealth of information in a relativley short amount of space. Morgan examines the events of the time and the principles and beliefs that sparked the American Revolution. After a while I found myself enjoying the book at times, but it was absolutely not written as a source of entertainment. I had to keep a dictionary close by whenever reading this book. It is a very factual piece with very little opinion. Edmund functions more like an analyst interpreting the facts. I would recommend this book to anyone who takes an interest in political science or would like to know more about the American Revolution. Morgan does one thing and he does it very well; he gives you an in-depth look into the events of the time and the principles and beliefs that helped shape a nation.
