Overview

A Companion to the American Revolution is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in American political, social, and cultural history. Ninety articles by key historians cover all aspects of the Revolution, providing a detailed chronology of events and analyzing the internal character and consequences of the Revolution both in detail and in depth. Tracing the war's far-reaching repercussions from the Caribbean to Russia, the editors view it as a major event in world history and provide an international perspective on the periods before, during, and after the conflict. Moreover, the Companion provides a unique, cross-cultural picture of revolutionary America, with essays covering the arts, literature, music, religion, and language; contributors also discuss the status and experience of women and African American and Amerindian peoples of the period.
