Gordon Wood's Creation of the American Republic is excellent. It's starting to age a bit, but it's still a must-read in my book.

West coast schools are obligated to be extra active today to make up for the east coast closures, right?

Yeah I read that too. Were you gonna plagiarize the whole thing for us- you have any thoughts of- of your own on this matter?

Basically what were saying is go watch good will hunting, better story about America than any old book

The elusive republic by Drew McCoy is pretty good. Not an easy read, but it's well worth it if you're interested in the conflicts between Jefferson and Hamilton. Fair warning: It's pretty heavy on political economy, which was awesome for me but isn't for everyone.

Political economy was an awesome class. And really easy, because I had already taken advanced economics by the time I took it. I do try and remember the key concepts that they pounded into my head for years and still struggle to remember :(

Yeah I have read some history books to learn in my own time, but until I start school I'm currently on a mission to read every John Grisham novel
