Disclaimer I received an Advance Reading Copy from the publisher via Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for this review As both a history teacher and advocate for free speech I thoroughly enjoyed this book Using primary sources and critical analysis of secondary sources Kluger s fills his narrative with plot and intrigue worthy of a fantasy kingdom or the English monarchs of several hundred years ago In addition his analysis of the importance of Zenger both to his time and our present day is spot on and his critiue of other well known secondary sources is valuable However I have somewhat against the work First as this is an ARC I realize that there will be mistakes Indeed I found several spelling errors and name discrepancies notably with the surname De Lancey the most common spelling Second in early chapters Kluger makes vague historical claims such that Anne was the best Stuart monarch without supporting fact He also makes factual errors concerning the founding of the Middle Colonies however these errors are rectified often on the facing page I trust these first two categories were fixed before the final printing Third though I have a problem with the title based on subject matter Though the subtitle claims to be about the trials of John Peter Zenger Kluger spends the first third of the book setting the stage approximately 200 pages of which only 30 might be charitably attributed to discussing Zenger Now these pages are a delight to read and a necessity to the narrative so I do not think they should be removed However I would have amended the subtitle to Lewis Morris John Peter Zenger and the Birth of America s Free Press or simply The Birth of America s Free Press As this is a stylistic opinion than anything else it should not influence your desire to read this book If you enjoy American History want to learn about America s freedom of speech and freedom of the press or just want a look into the colonial politics of New YorkNew Jersey you will enjoy this book 4 Stars This book is both well written and deals with issues that are importantworth some thought
