    About The Book

    The American Revolution was the culmination of a contest between two factions of wealthy colonists, expansionists & non-expansionists. The first were convinced that the colonies had the “spiritual & physical resources to become a self-reliant, mighty New World empire”; the latter were “citizens of little faith.” Tho concentrating on elites, Egnal does not neglect the common people. He focuses on Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia & S. Carolina, delineating factional composition & activity from the period of imperial wars thru the adoption of the Constitution. A challenging new interpretation, well written & solidly supported. Highly recommended for academic libraries. Roy H. Tryon, Delaware State Archives, Dover
