Some Forthcoming Books I Hope to Read
I also have several books in the queue that I hope to get to sometime in the early summer. They include John Smolenski's Friends and Strangers: The Making of a Creole Culture in Colonial Pennsylvania; Benjamin Irvin's Clothed in Robes of Sovereignty: The Continental Congress and the People Out of Doors; Tal Howard's God and the Atlantic: America, Europe, and the Religious Divide; and Revolutionary Founders: Rebels, Radicals, and Reformers in the Making of a Nation. And that is only a start.
New books are constantly coming out. Here are a few forthcoming titles that have caught my eye:
Thomas Kidd, Patrick Henry: First Among Patriots (November 2011).
Kariann Akemi Yokota, Unbecoming British: How Revolutionary America Became a Postcolonial Nation. (September 2011).
George Boudreau, Independence: A Guide to Revolutionary Philadelphia ( July 2011).
Peter Onuf and Nicholas P. Cole, Thomas Jefferson, the Classical World, and Early America (September 2011).

David D. Hall, A Reforming People: Puritanism and the Transformation of Public Life in New England (April 2011).
Daniel K. Richter, Before the Revolution: America's Ancient Pasts (April 2011).
