21 editions published between 1974 and 1978 in 4 languages and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since the first printing press came to America, the media have played an essential role in our history. Newspapers, pamphlets, books, and later radio and television, have been instrumental in making and breaking presidents, starting and ending wars, dictating manners and even morals, setting standards of style and taste, for better or for worse. Some of the media's achievements have been heroic, some of their activities have been scandalous, but in their entirety they have served as one of the most vital checks and balances in our nation, defying the efforts of leaders from George Washington onward to muzzle their free expression and standing today as virtually unique in the work for their independence and power

The battle for North America by Francis Parkman( Book )

13 editions published between 1948 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 13 volumes as France and England in North America in 1889, this classic work by the most famous American historian of this period has been skillfully edited by the distinguished historian John Tebbel into a single volume. While retaining the original focus, the graceful style and clear chronology, the Editor has eliminated the repetitive detail and archaic phrases. The result is a wonderfully readable edition of the definitive account of the struggle for the North American continent from the landing of the first French adventurer in 1534 to the Peace of Paris in 1763. The struggle for control of the continent was dominated by some brilliant commanders - Champlain, Jogues, La Salle, Frontenac, Washington, Howe, Wolfe and Montcalm - and eventually resulted in the ejection of the French from North America. As Parkman notes, 'On the American continent the war was ended, and the British colonists breathed for a space as they drifted unwittingly towards a deadlier strife.' For the British victory only served to sow the seeds of their own defeat in the American Revolution. -- from https://www.bookdepository.com (Dec. 7, 2015)

Turning the world upside down : inside the American Revolution by John William Tebbel( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From this perspective, the Revolution turns out to be like other wars - not a glorious, high-minded struggle, but one (for both sides) in which initial enthusiasm quickly fades, the gap between soldiers and citizens widens, and the distance between illusion and reality becomes ever greater. Yet the Revolution produced authentic heroes and a cast of other characters that would dwarf any Hollywood extravaganza for sheer variety, if nothing more. The War for Independence was a unique event in our history, one that deserves to be understood much better if we are to understand ourselves as a people and a nation
