Review
Hogeland (Declaration: The Nine Tumultuous Weeks When America Became Independent: May 1-July 4, 1776 ) examines how populists striving for economic and social justice were derailed in the founding of the United States and how both today's Tea Party and Occupy movements mistakenly look to the Founding Fathers for historical justification. He shows that wealthy merchants and planters dominated society as lenders and landlords. He cites the North Carolina Regulators, the Pennsylvania Committee of Privates, and the Whiskey Rebellion as populist attempts at egalitarian reform and notes how, in defense, the economic elite formulated a strong federal government built on centralized banking with taxing and military powers. Familiar names such as Alexander Hamilton, John and Samuel Adams, and George Washington figure prominently in his study but so too do egalitarian radicals such as Thomas Paine and Herman Husband. Hogeland concedes that he is at variance with consensus historians. VERDICT This provocative work will displease members of both the right and the left, but it is recommended to academic and other readers who wish to dig beneath history's surface and note both the populist and anti-populist dimensions of the nation's founding.— Lawrence Maxted, Gannon Univ. Lib., Erie, PA --Lawrence Maxted (Reviewed September 1, 2012) (Library Journal, vol 137, issue 14, p110)
