Текст работы

The Radicalism of the American RevolutionGordon Wood is Professor of History at Brown University. He is one of the leading scholars researching issues of the American Revolution in the country. In 1970, his book “
The Creation of the American Republic 1776– 1787” was nominated for the National Book Award and received the Bancroft and John H. Dunning prizes.
His outstanding book, “The Radicalism of the American Revolution” won the Pulitzer Prize in 199 3. It is considered to be one of the most engaging scientific book
among the classic works on the social, political and economic consequences of the Revolutionary War. This book has a power to redirect historical thinking and well-established knowledge about the Revolution and its place within the national consciousness. In the book “The Radicalism of the American Revolution”
, Professor Wood represents for readers a revolution that transformed almost feudal society into a democratic one, whose emerging realities sometimes confused and disappointed its founding fathers. Professor Wood has written a
wide range of interesting books. He was also involved in Ken Burn's PBS production on Thomas Jefferson,
and is contributing his knowledge and understanding
in the National titution Centre that was built in Philadelphia and on a regular basis dedicate
s a share of his time teaching history to high school students around the country.
The values and lessons of the American Revolution seem to be so “natural” and also have become so deeply integrated
in American politics and social life that they are irrefutable. W e may state that actually no one today seriously supports
a monarchy and hereditary aristocracy for the United States. Thus far
