About the Author
This second edition, published 11 years after the first edition, has added a new coeditor and greatly expanded the number of inclusions to more than 500 cross-referenced entries. The single most important expansion has been the bibliography on the War of 1812. . . . Typical of all the volumes in this series with which I am familiar, it is an excellent work. The popularity of the Broadway musical Hamilton has brought attention to early American history to a whole new audience and generation. This volume can expand upon that introduction.

Overall, this is another good, solid entry in the Rowman & Littlefield Historical Dictionaries of USA Politics and Political Eras series and it comes, as always, in a handy volume.
