Michaels book should be in every high school's cirricululum. Upon finishing this book I realized that the subject matter is an extension upon the glimpse of history we are taught early on. His perspective sheds light onto the matters that actually existed at the time, within lives and actions. It is communicative and not just centered around politics. It builds a story of their lives and makes you realize that their actions WERE justified and the "why" of the timeline leading up to what our text ...more

Review of the Founders’ revolution

I obtained a signed pre-release copy from the author and am happy to provide this honest review of his work.

Michael S. Law has written a carefully considered history of the writing of the Declaration of Independence with analysis of today’s conditions in comparison with the conditions of the time. This is not an overtly political book, though it is unapologetically conservative in its views. These views are based solely on the writings of the founders and on his

There is a difference between scholarship and personal opinion; and a difference between personal opinion and a political rants. Unfortunately this book digresses into political rants throughout, which weakens its ability to convey valuable information--or to be taken seriously at points. Sorely missing in the rants is a thoughtful discussion of the disputed federal and state rulings in a way that shows the complexity of constitutional law and its interpretation. It lacks insightful, scholarly c ...more

Michael did a fantastic job at researching and putting the timelines together for this book. It is detailed and gives accurate information about the history and reasons for the Declaration of Independence. There were so many back histories and stories I hadn't heard before and it was extremely interesting. I would have read it faster if I wasn't working so many hours of overtime. Michael is an amazing asset to our community and I applaud him for this amazing book.

This is an enjoyable book. Mr. Law lays out in detail the reasons why the colonists declared their independence from England. He gives some enlightening comparisons between the abuses of King George on the colonists and the abuses our government is guilty of today. I'm looking forward to reviewing some of his other books and maybe reading a few.

I think The Founders' Revolution is an important book for Americans and those who are interested in the foundations of American government and culture. Michael Law has deconstructed the tenets of the Declaration of Independence and brought forward the philosophy behind the words. The book's title says it all, and Law, attorney that he is, supports every page of narrative with quotes from the men who were party to casting off the oppression of George III. I learned a lot reading Founders' Revolut ...more
