Comments Angry Mobs and Founding Fathers: The Fight for Control of the American Revolution

  • Warren

    Our understanding of the birth of our Nation shapes our political, social, and moral viewpoint today. In "Angry Mobs and Founding Fathers", Michael E. Newton retells the story from the perspective of the two main forces driving for change. Refusing to paint history from a 21st century perspective, the author richly quotes from those who participated in our Nation's founding and their contemporaries, a much more difficult and rewarding endeavor. A surpisingly compact and easy read, "Angry Mobs an [...]


  • John Findlay

    This book reads almost like a history textbook. While not an easy read, it was very informative, and pointed out aspects of the American Revolution and the Constitutional Convention that I was unaware of. For instance, the author points out how diverse opinion was during the revolution, and how it was as much a civil war as it was a battle against Britain. And also he indicates that only a few Americans really fought in the revolution. Regarding the Constitution, he discusses the goal of the aut [...]


  • John Vibber

    Most modern authors extol the roles of liberty and democracy in the American Revolution. Michael Newton tells how these concepts actually posed problems for the Founding Fathers when they set out to win a war and design a government. The mobs which provided the raw energy needed for revolution embodied a democracy based on the tyranny of the majority in which one person's liberty was obtained at the expense of another's. The Founding Fathers knew that this tendency if unrestrained would make equ [...]


  • Mary Adams

    So much is written of the Founding Fathers it's easy to believe that the American Revolution was fought by a total of fifty-six men. (Give or take a few, depending on your perspective.) I have been looking for something that gave me more insights into the views of the average rabble-rousing colonial or even those caught in the middle. As with my fiction reviews, it makes sense to focus on the two main characters in the story. The Angry Mobs: For the most part, these "mobs" remain the nameless, f [...]


  • Michael J. Toro

    Wonderful, well-researched history: interesting and entertaining as it's informative and edifying. The revolutionary genius of America's Founding Fathers, the fine line between "angry mobs" and statesmanship, rarely better outlined than in this brilliant chronicle.


  • Paul Garrett

    With politicians calling for a return to the Founding Fathers' intent -- while most of the time showing very little understanding of what that might mean -- this book makes for timely reading. The Founding Fathers are not a monolithic collection of inspired men who produced by divine inspiration a document for the ages. They were idealists tempered by practicality. They met to create the Constitution at a time when the entire revolution could have been undone. Despite myths, the Revolution itsel [...]


  • Tom Schulte

    Not particularly enlightening or revealing, but this was certainly a good history read I got from free for the Kindle. Newton focuses on the desire of founding fathers to preserve government control for and by the wealthy and landed and fear the unpropertied masses and any movement with a large, democractic base. I doubt any ardent Tea Party advaocate has read this book.:)It basically spans from pre-Independence times to The Age of Jackson when the United States setting into the cyclical nature [...]


  • Polly Glowatz

    Very enlightening. Now when people say we our country has gone to the dogs etc. I say we have the best democracy in the world. this book makes me want to visit Williamsburg, Philadelphia and boston. I want to watch and read about Washington,Jefferson and all the others. Great overview for a beginner in history of the US.


  • Nicole

    I thought this was a very interesting read with not necessarily entirely new information but more detail on information I already knew. It involved a lot of dates and at times I wish it would have stayed in the order of the dates rather than jump back and forth so much.


  • Kat

    I really liked the continued references to BALANCE and COMPROMISE. Seems like we could use some of that today.


  • Pkstod

    Dry. Learned a few things which was cool. Lots of dates.


  • Chris

    I liked it. I learned a lot. It is a great history lesson giving a couple of perspectives.

  • Sue

    This book may bring to light some of our family stories from my g(7) grandfather and his family that were participants in the revolution- Brandywine, Valley Forge and Trenton.


  • Jeff Smith

    Very good.


  • Kathy

    Decent source of information, but not particularly well written and quite redundant.


  • Beth Elliott

    I enjoyed it but only people who are into history will really enjoy it


  • Marc

  • George

  • Kelly

    I enjoyed this book. It is very informative and enlightening. It should be used in the classroom to teach a more in-depth look into the founding of America.


  • Mary

    This was a free ebook when I got it. This is a good example of getting what you pay for. I was unable to finish it because it was boring and poorly written.
