Conceived in Liberty free PDF and EPUB download
The number one thing that I had hated about all my high school classes and even some college classes, is that the teachers were very good at spouting off facts and dates but none of them ever really dove very deep into what ever it was being taught, high school history was sadly never very exciting. And I was too often left with the feeling of being incomplete in the understanding of a particular lesson. If you hated your history text books for lack of substance but still love history then you will love this book. It is exciting and full of really integrating facts. It also really gives a feel for how the ideology of classical liberalism found fertile ground in America. If you want to understand the mood of the revolutionary war than you need to get a feel for the earlier colonial era. There are so many thrilling acts of rebellion, defiance and conflict in the history of the colonies, its like reading an action / adventure novel. Yet this is real unembellished American history, not some watered down text-book or some attempt at twisting history to serve as fodder for some political theatrics, but rather a true account of how an ideology built upon the foundations of liberty and individuality and born in England, became so strongly rooted in the new world.
If your a fan of hetalia this book is a blast to read.
