If you're not into early American power struggles, this is not the book for you. In fact, even if you are it may not be. I happen to love the topic (I'm from one of the places where it all happened), but I found the book was written for someone who knew the topic as well as the author did. Since this is the first book-length history of the Rebellion, that would be no one. It was convoluted and spent too little time on who was doing what and why. In the end it was factual but lifeless.

Recommends it for: Those who love early American history
Definitly a yawner if you don't like the topic. This book deals with some of the social problems that exsisted in the Early American republic, and how the government (and common man) responded. I loved it, but have to admit that it is NOT a page-turner.
