Beschreibung

Colin Bonwick expands and updates the well-received first edition, and incorporates fresh material drawn from recent scholarship. The structure and argument of the book remain as before, but in particular Bonwick pays greater attention to Native Americans, African Americans, and white women. Though the book traces the attainment of independence, it focuses especially on the internal revolution that created republican governments, and considers the extent of social change. It concludes by examining the development of the American union.

Pressestimmen

'Colin Bonwick has managed to improve an already fine book, and I can
recommend the volume without hesitation for undergraduates studying this period.' - Tom Bartlett, University College Dublin

Praise for the first edition:
It may be the best - certainly it is one of the best - single-volume accounts ever produced about the Revolution....anyone looking for a single volume on the American Revolution to recommend to a class or friend would be well advised to consider this learned synthesis.' - Bruce C.
