Unfinished revolution : the early American republic in a British world by Sam W Haynes ( Book )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conflicted and complex, American attitudes toward Great Britain provided a framework through which citizens of the republic developed a clearer sense of their national identity. Writing from the vantage point of America's unrivaled global dominance, historians have tended to see in the young nation the superpower it would become. Haynes argues that, for all its claims of distinctiveness and the "manifest destiny," the young republic exhibited a set of anxieties not uncommon among nation-states that have emerged from long periods of colonial rule.--[book jacket]

A HIGHLY READABLE ACCOUNT OF THE TEXAS REVOLUTION
The Mexican Revolution conflict and consolidation, 1910-1940 by Douglas W Richmond ( )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1910 insurgent leaders crushed the Porfirian dictatorship, but in the years that followed fought among themselves, until a nationalist consensus produced the 1917 Constitution. This in turn provided the basis for a reform agenda that transformed Mexico in the modern era. The civil war and the reforms that followed receive new and insightful attention in this book. These essays, the result of the 45th annual Walter Prescott Webb Memorial Lectures, presented by the University of Texas at Arlington in March 2010, commemorate the centennial of the outbreak of the revolution. <p
