This book is a magisterial account of the causes and nature of the American Revolution, by historian Theodore Draper. It is as dissection of the process that led to the final break with England and to the armed revolt in 1775. The author examines the logic of dissolution and the ways in which the rapidly increasing colonial population and commerce propelled an unfolding revolution. American leaders foresaw that the colonies were destined to become a mighty or rising empire and they determined that Americans, not the British, should control this future. The book offers a compelling account of both complex conflicts - the British against the French, and the Americans against the British. It is a major work of historical, cultural, social, and political analysis.
