Liberty Press is a marvel, and no, I don't work for them! They are reprinting some of the classic conservative and libertarian works of authors from the 18th and 19th century, as well as modern writers. Hyneman and Lutz's collection is a perfect example of what Liberty is accomplishing. This is an encyclopaedic collection of writings on the American revolution, covering a wide variety of topics, that informed and shaped the debate over American independence and the meaning of the American Revolution. The collection extends to 1815 since the Revolution itself cannot really be said to have ended until the War of 1812. This is a broad collection. You will find essays on slavery, on virtue and republicanism, on the meaning of freedom and liberty to the American revolutionaries, even conservative and radical alternatives to the moderate path most Americans embraced. Hyneman and Lutz also move beyond the 'great men' of the period, and delve into more popular writings, and lesser known figures. I do have one complaint, and a suggestion concerning these volumes. The two volumes are heavily weighted toward New England and Middle State writers (esp. New Englanders), and really give short shrift to Southerners from Virginia and South Carolina. And I would suggest purchasing Sandoz's Political Sermons of the Founding Period, as a companion volume to these two.
