"The Making of the American Republic: 1763-1815 provokes readers to think about the implications of the American Revolution in a new way. It offers a larger interpretive theme that places the events, the people, and the ideas of the period into the context of how the American Revolution gave birth to a dynamic capitalist economic system. With the argument that an aggressively entrepreneurial American social order emerged out of the democratic impulses of the era, it synthesizes fundamental details into a larger examination of change over time. Appropriate for studying the Revolution while holding the early republic as its focal point, The Making of the American Republic includes detailed portraits of Franklin, Washington, and Jefferson, as well as ample discussion of blacks, women, and Native Americans."--BOOK JACKET.
