A Shameless Self-Promotion
I have completed a book, and it is for sale at the Kindle store. It is:
Documenting America: Lessons from the United States' Historical Documents
Here's the link, and here's the description:
The United States is rich in documents, many which remain in obscurity, but which contain valuable information about the formation of this nation, while at the same time contain lessons for where we are right now. In this book, a number of these documents are quoted in large blocks, the importance of the document explained, and relevancy for America shown. The documents selected cover the 18th and 19th centuries. The colonial era, the run up to Independence, the formative years, and the rise to the beginning of being a great world power are all herein.I'll say here what I didn't say in the on-line description: I wrote the book from a conservative political perspective. What I get into a document, and try to draw a lesson for the 21st century, I calls 'em like I sees 'em. But, if the document seems to espouse a non-conservative theme, I try to bring it back to a conservative understanding.
Well, there's the promotion. The book is a bargain at $1.25, all 40,000 words (about 160 pages of a standard print book. I hope some readers of TSM will buy it and post reviews on the Kindle store. Oh, and I understand that just about any electronic device can display the book, though you might need to download the free Kindle app.
