The Louisiana Purchaseby Gail Sakurai
The most important territorial expansion in American history was the result of model diplomacy, not force of arms. Faced with the prospect of France adminstering French colonies on the American frontier made American officials extremely nervous. This book explains how American diplomats, with a lot of luck and the leadership of Thomas Jefferson, were able to double the size of the United States for an incredibly low price.
