4 Colin G. Calloway The American Revolution in Indian Country Crisis and Diversity in Native American Communities

This is a like new collectible hardcover with dust jacket. Crisp and clean, white and bright inside. Unmarked and shelf kept as new. Dust jacket is clean and shiny with only a hint of shelf wear from display. National mythology accords Indians a minimal and negative role in the story of the American Revolution. Yet Indian people in Revolutionary America, whether they sided with rebels or redcoats, or neither, or both, were doing much the same as the American colonists; fighting for their freedom in tumultuous times. This book presents the first broad coverage of Indian experiences in the Revolution rather than of Indian participation as allies or enemies of contending parties. Drawn from diverse historical records, the author shows how Native Americans pursued strategies and endured.

The Making of the President 1789, Marvin Kitman
8 Marvin Kitman The Making of the President 1789
Harper Publishing 0060159812 / 9780060159818 Hardcover New New 
This is the true story of how the Mount Vernon machine engineered the first election of George Washington. They gave him the best campaign slogan in history: First in War, First in Peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen, but like most political slogans, it was not all true. As a general, Washington had a few shortcomings. He won the war by losing seemingly all the major battles except the last one. Often his flank was unprotected. In peace, he perfected the art of denying he was a candidate. In this book the author presents and humorously analyzes the true facts of the most underreported presidential election in history.

He shows the limitations of capitalism, saying that reform responds to the people not money.
