The Louisiana Purchase by Thomas J Fleming ( Book )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,609 libraries worldwide
"In 1801, relations between the world's only two republics, the United States and France, were at a low ebb. American merchants had just lost millions of dollars to French privateers in the "Quasi-War" of the late 1790s, and Napoleon was scheming to acquire the Louisiana Territory from Spain and create a "wall of brass" that would halt America's westward expansion. Yet only a few years later, Napoleon agreed to sell Louisiana to the United States for $15 million. How did America manage to double its territory and end French colonial ambitions in the New World - without firing a shot?" "This book by historian Thomas Fleming delivers the answers. Taking us behind the scenes in. Thomas Jefferson's raw "federal village" of Washington, D.C., and inside the duplicitous world of Napoleonic Paris, Fleming shows how Bonaparte haters in Spain, the French army's disastrous failure in Haiti, some wily American negotiating, and Napoleon's resolve to renew his war with "perfidious Albion" led to the momentous French decision to sell Louisiana - and cede 838,000 square miles of land to the United States. Along the way, we meet a host of characters as they attempt to advance their nations' interests - and their personal ambitions - through diplomacy, threats, lies, bribery, and treachery."--Jacket.

Duel : Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, and the future of America by Thomas J Fleming ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,403 libraries worldwide
In this retelling of the fatal duel between Hamilton and Burr, historian Fleming takes the reader into the post-revolutionary world of 1804, a chaotic and fragile time in the young country as well as a time of tremendous global instability. The success of the French Revolution and the proclamation of Napoleon as First Consul for Life had enormous impact on men like Hamilton and Burr, feeding their own political fantasies at a time of perceived Federal government weakness and corrosion. Their hunger for fame spawned antagonisms that wreaked havoc on themselves and their families and threatened to destabilize the fragile young American republic. From that poisonous brew came the tangle of regret and anger and ambition that drove the two to their murderous confrontation in Weehawken, New Jersey. This is authoritative history at its most readable.--From publisher description.

The New Dealers' war : Franklin D. Roosevelt and the war within World War II by Thomas J Fleming ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,327 libraries worldwide
"Solidly challenging the idea that World War II was a "good war," The New Dealers' War offers a drastically new look at the conflict that has dominated the history of the twentieth century. For many Americans, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's role in leading the United States throughout most of World War II has made him one of America's most venerated presidents. Biographers have all but lionized FDR for his war leadership, a tendency that has been reinforced lately as Americans celebrate the riches of memory by saluting the generation that won that titanic global conflict with blockbuster movies and best-selling books. But, as Thomas Fleming reminds us, memory is not history, and in The New Dealers' War, he reveals an entirely different Roosevelt from the one that most people like to remember." "Unquestionably, The New Dealers' War is one of those rare books that will force readers to rethink what they think they know about one of the most pivotal events in the American past. It will surely spark debate about FDR's role in shaping the course of history in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.
