Read this in the 80s, recently found it online, bought and read again. The best history of America I've ever read.

If you expect to win arguments about American politics, you need to know the facts and to know the facts you should read James MacGregor Burns.

Excellent, readable history of the United States through mid-Civil War. The author's comprehensive look at the various factors that went into the making and near sundering of the new republic makes this a must for all students of US history.
