In John Ferling's Independence: The Struggle to Set America Free (Bloomsbury Press, now out in paperback), the veteran scholar has written a compelling and accessible one-volume chronicle of the most pivotal period in our nation's history - the battle in Continental Congress over declaring American independence. As R.B. Bernstein (author of The Founding Fathers Reconsidered) says: "Expertly blending biographical vignettes with fast-paced narrative and sure-footed interpretation, Ferling captures the mystery of historical contingnency."
