What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Represents a quantum leap in our understanding of the Revolution. . . . [The book] is social history, intellectual history, institutional history, political history, and not any single one of them, which is to say that it is good history.—Edmund S. Morgan, New Republic



To a far greater extent than is true of most historical monographs, it is a work of art. . . . No student of early American history should miss it.—Journal of Southern History
