Samuel Adams: Son of Liberty, Father of Revolution
This book's prologue cites the important role that Adams played in the Revolutionary War and speculates as to some of the reasons that he has "largely eluded our popular imagination." He is portrayed here as a passionate man whose influence and actions were pivotal in our nation's history. Largely responsible for instigating the Boston Tea Party, Adams and the Sons of Liberty were active and vocal about England's control over Colonial trade. Irvin's account of events is exciting and written in a compelling narrative style. He presents an unbiased assessment of Adams's actions and character. Like Thomas Paine, Adams's talent for writing stirring articles was integral in invoking citizen support for an independent nation. Some articles and other primary-source documents, judiciously abridged, appear throughout the book. Black-and-white reproductions add visual appeal. Students will enjoy knowing such trivia as the fact that Adams's tuition to Harvard, at age 14, was paid in flour. A fine, objective biography that establishes the subject's egalitarian philosophies and explains the political realities of his day in an engaging manner.
