Revolutionary America, 1763-1815: A Political History
The American Revolutiondescribes and explains the crucial events in the history of the United States between 1763 and 1815, when settlers in North America rebelled against British authority, won their independence in a long and bloddy stuggle and created an enduring republic.
Placing the political revolution at the core of the story, this book considers:
* the deterioration of the relationship between Britain and the American colonists
The American Revolutionalso examines those who paradoxically were excluded from the political life of the new republic and the American claim to uphold the principle that all men are created equal. In particular this book describes the experiences of women who were often denied the rights of citizens, Native Americans and African Americans. The American Revolutionis an important book for all students of the American past.
