The Slave Community
The Slave Community: Plantation Life in the Antebellum South
In the book, The Slave Community, written by Blassingame in 1979. The book centers on the argument that historians have always neglected and never have they steadily investigated the life occurrences of the American slaves. According to the author, historians have not told the slave story and their tribulations. Blassingame affirms that historians have always directed their focus on those who owned the slaves, while ignoring an important aspect in the slavery period. Indeed, scholars have focused on a distorted and lopsided analysis of plantation life that denies the slaves any consequential and unique culture of their own. Besides, the perspective ignores the significance of the slaves, family life, their religion, and their culture in general. In the book, the author reiterates that slaves have been always portrayed by historians as, interlopers who own nothing of their own and would probably own nothing, even in the near future.
The book further highlights that since historians relied much on data collected from the planter’s sources; it must have led historians such as, Elkins to imitate colonial typecast of slaves, such as, the subservient second-class people, and the half child. The book restates that, even though, slavery was possessed over his own life, instead of identifying himself and agreeing to his bosses, the slaves stuck onto their African culture. He always endeavored to have a sense of worth in the slave residence, consumed most of his economic time away from the surveillance oftheir masters who were the whites, restricted significant aspects of his life, and did some individually momentous things on his own prerogative. In his concluding remarks, Blassingame (1979), elucidates the slave culture and narrates the roles played by slaves in the growth of the American economy. In his understanding, the author believes that slaves played a crucial role in the growth of the country’s economy. According to the book, the slavery aspects have not been analyzed properly by historians.
Conceived in Liberty
The book Conceived in Liberty written by Murray Rothbard explicates the American history since the pre-colonial period and through the American Revolution. The book unveils all that transpired in history to bring America to a total liberty. In addition, the book highlights role played by citizens and the struggle between liberation and political power. Rothbard successfully manages to provide an option to the two conservative interpretive devices in his book. On one hand, there are thosewho regarded the American Revolution, as a conformist affair. On the contrary, there are those on the side who want to refer to it, as some kind of proto-socialist uprising. However, unlike most of his counterparts, Rothbard perceives this time, as duration of hastening democratic radicalism. He also saw the pioneers of the American Revolution as an event that was split into two distinct camps, in which the first camp entailed those individuals who were in pursuit of destroying the British Empire’s state machineries, which was the nerve center of the British rule (Rothbard, 2011).
According to Rothbard (2011), the other camp that had no intention of destroying the empire, but they wanted the camps to be operated by Americans and not the British. The book depicts the first camp as being dominated by libertarians andanti-federalist wing linked with Jefferson and Jackson. The centralist camp, liaised with Hamilton,inhabited the second camp and later the Whigs took over. The federalists felt that if the Americans were given to control the state and its resources, the force of the federal state could serve the needs of the population. interest, which appropriately coincided with the America interests, which would be beneficial to the people of America. The clash between these two perspectives is another element of getting a clear comprehension of the revolution, what its outcome was as well as its conservative and drastic aspects.
The Age of Reagan: A History, 1974-2008
The book The Age of Reagan written by Sean Wilentz is one of the many history books that offers confrontational chronicle of the America's political history after the fall of Nixon. In this book, Sean Wilentz explains how a conformist movement once deemed marginal succeeded to grasp power and got hold of it and the earth-shattering consequences that followed. Ronald Reagan spearheaded conservative movement to see through the success that they all anticipated. Reagan in his political guise and his policies personified a new union of deeply right-leaning politics with some of the oratory bit of the spirit of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal and John F. Kennedy's New Frontier (Wilentz, 2009). The book portrays Reagan as conservative hero in a conservative age in which he became admired by a few individuals and disliked by other historians in the American history analysis. Through drawing on many of the primary documents that have been neglected, or only recently released to the public, as well as, on emerging historical work. Wilentz provides priceless revelations about conservatism's dominance and the epoch in which Reagan was the excellent political figure in the history of America as far as the political revolution is concerned. The book precisely seeks to acknowledge the contribution that Reagan dedicated for the good of his people.

As always, your writers have completed another impressive paper. This time, the subject matter required a lot of research. They not only completed the research. They also documented it absolutely perfectly. It would have taken me months to write a paper this thorough and of this high quality. Thank you so much for your diligence. It was greatly appreciated.

Dear Writers #0019, Thank you for taking such a good care of me. I apologize for being as picky as I was, but I was only reflecting the professor’s requirements. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got my grades back. He gave me an A+ on the paper, which is almost unheard. The paper you produced for me included each and every thing that the professor had required. He is notorious for giving us next-to-impossible tasks to perform in his class, but you managed to pull it off. I don’t know if any other student has received an A+ in this guy’s class, but he simply could not find a single thing wrong with my paper! Yay! Thanks so much.
