Author has an interesting thesis, the only fault I really find with it is the practicality of what he's saying. Obviously it would have been better if slavery never existed, but the movement that would have been necessary to get rid of it during this time period would have been momentous, even more so than the Revolutionary War. In this regard, without the actions the founders and authors of the time took to bring unity to the country, which including justifying slavery, who knows if America even would have been able to keep itself from ripping apart at the seams. I would have liked this book more if the author explored how things would have unfolded if a different nationalization process occurred and what impact that would have on the present day. Other than that, I found the history of texts very interesting in describing how America went from the Revolution to becoming a unified country. If you enjoy American Revolutionary history, I think you'll enjoy this book.
