Great set of lists. But I must point out that despite the fact that your list and that of the New York Times are totally different, they did list (at least) two good books:
Empire of Liberty by Gordon Wood
(Subtitled: A History of the Early Republic)&
A Country of Vast Designs by Robert Merry (Subtitled: James K. Polk, the Mexican War, & the Conquest of the American Continent)

Remember what Spurgeon said about a blind hog?
