About the Author

Edmund S. Morgan is the Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University and past president of the Organization of American Historians.


"Apart from its uplifting argument, part of the appeal of The Birth of the Republic is its prose style, which is blissfully bereft of academic jargon, sophisticated but simple in a way that scholarly specialists find impressive and ordinary readers find comprehensible. Morgan makes the story he is telling take precedence over the note cards he has assembled. He regards narrative as the highest form of analysis, and he has a natural gift for telling a story, silently digesting mountains of historical evidence to produce the distilled essence of the issue at stake."
-- "Joseph J. Ellis, from the foreword"
"No better brief chronological introduction to the period can be found than Edmund S. Morgan's The Birth of the Republic: 1763-89."
-- "Wilson Quarterly"
"The author concisely and clearly covers the major topics, and he offers a well-organized and attractively written survey. . . . The Birth of the Republic is particularly to be praised because of the sensible and judicious views offered by Morgan. He is unfair neither to Britain nor to the colonies."
-- "American Historical Review"
