The ideological origins of the American Revolution.


Show Synopsis

To the original text of what has become a classic of American historical literature, Bernard Bailyn adds a substantial essay, "Fulfillment," as a Postscript. Here he discusses the intense, nation-wide debate on the ratification of the Constitution, stressing the continuities between that struggle over the foundations of the national government and the original principles of the Revolution.

A Classic History

Bailyn's Ideological Origins of the American Revolution is a classic historical work, which adds significantly to our understanding of North American culture and society on the eve of the Revolution and the ways in which the colony's inhabitants were already on a path toward participatory democracy in the decades preceding the rebellion. An excellent, relevant, and enjoyable read for anyone interested in American history of the period.
