From the Publisher
"Inspires a string of adjectives: provocative, original, clever, iconoclastic, and querulous."
— American Historical Review
"A worthwhile book for anyone with a solid interest in the early US. . . . Highly recommended."
"Expands commonplace observations about the political tactics of resistance and revolution into a revisionist view of eighteenth-century American development. . . . An interesting book."
— International History Review
"In elucidating the origins of 'the empire's cult of Monarchy,' McConville is at his boldest and most innovative. . . . This innovative and thought-provoking book should be required reading for all those with an interest in the British Atlantic world. It will surely be central to any future discussions of early American politics, religion, popular culture, and the coming of the Revolution."
— Pennsylvania Magazine of History
"Creative and erudite. . . . Its new perspectives makes it all the more stimulating for historians of early America and beyond."
— William and Mary Quarterly
"Salient and compelling. . . . An important contribution to the field of colonial American history."
— New England Quarterly
"This well-researched and scrupulously detailed work."
"Here is a work so controversial that some will barely be able to sit still as they turn the pages."
