Two authors talked about their books about the founding of America in conversation with Gary Johnson.

T.H. Breen is the author of American Insurgents, American Patriots: The Revolution of the People (Hill and Wang, 2010). In his book he focuses on the ordinary people who were prepared to fight long before the Battle of Lexington and Concord of April 19, 1775.

Jack Rakove is the author of Revolutionaries: A New History of the Invention of America (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010). In his book Professor Rakove tells the stories of America’s Founding Fathers before they became fully formed leaders, as individuals whose lives were radically altered by the events of the mid-1770s
