Outstanding read and preparation for understanding 18 th century America and origins of the revolution.
Summaries of the sections allow for a quick understanding of the events covered and points made.
And then the detail of the shaping events and personalities involved make a page turning read that gives a complete, informative and ballanced perspective on the complext interplay.
