9780140146615: The American Revolution (Penguin history)

In this book the whole course of the revolt against oppressive British legislation and taxation is recreated. The author shows us the giants who made the Revolution - men like Adams, Jefferson and Washington - and uses original sources to throw fresh light on famous incidents: the Boston Tea Party, the Declaration of Independence, the Battle of Lexington. But he also brings before the reader six very different people "living on the edge of empire" - from a plantation owner to a slave called Sam, a New England woman and a Boston shoemaker. All had major grievances that provided impetus for the Revolution, and all experienced profound changes in every aspect of their lives - changes that paved the way for America's dynamic development in the 19th century.
