Booknews
Crowley (history, Dalhousie U., Halifax, Nova Scotia) argues that the Founding Fathers of the US, though perhaps revolutionary, were by no means radical when it came to protecting their mercantile interests. He contends that they had no intention of ending their commercial dependence on the mother country, and in fact did not end it, though they had to adjust their economic and political theories somewhat to account for the shift from de jure to de facto dependence.
