I would like to understand what does the below sentence mean (highlighted in brow color).

The American Revolution took place in the 1770s. What he is implying is that the first edition was written pretty much at the time the event took place, and is thus outdated/ biased. Only after a certain period of time passes, can we assess the historical importance of a certain event.
