The 1790's: This is the Modern World

From Jay Winik, the author of the New York Times bestseller April 1865 comes The Great Upheaval. Named by USA Today as a Best Book of the Year and now available in paperback, this sweeping, magisterial drama explores the cold, dark battlefields and deadly clashes of ideologies that defined the 1790's and gave birth to the modern world. Highlighting the richest cast of characters to ever walk upon the world stage--Washington, Jefferson, Louis XVI, Robespierre, and Catherine the Great--The Great Upheaval is a gripping portrait of a tumultuous decade that will transform the way your students will view America's beginnings.
