Reviews

One of the half dozen most important books ever written about the American Revolution.

--New York Times Book Review


During the nearly two decades since its publication, this book has set the pace, furnished benchmarks, and afforded targets for many subsequent studies. If ever a work of history merited the appellation ‘modern classic,’ this is surely one.

--William and Mary Quarterly


[A] brilliant and sweeping interpretation of political culture in the Revolutionary generation.

--New England Quarterly


This is an admirable, thoughtful, and penetrating study of one of the most important chapters in American history.
