Galrahn has a mandatory reading list:

if you read this blog and have not read Ian Toll’s book Six Frigates, it is basically a party foul in the context of spilling your red wine on your boss at the Christmas party.

I wouldn’t go quite far, but Toll’s work is excellent particularly for his examination of the economic causes of early U.S. naval confrontations with France and England.
