The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party’s Revolution and the Battle over American History

★★★★★

Review:

A powerful and entertaining, if sometimes meandering argument against what Lepore calls “historical fundamentalism” and the tendency of modern political movements to align themselves with what the founders would have wanted. It’s also a good history of the pre-revolutionary period, condensed to explain our modern interpretations of it.
