The king's three faces : the rise & fall of royal America, 1688-1776 by Brendan McConville ( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Reinterpreting the first century of American history, Brendan McConville argues that colonial society developed a political culture marked by strong attachment to Great Britain's monarchs. This intense allegiance continued almost until the moment of independence, an event defined by an emotional break with the king. The American Revolution, McConville contends, emerged out of the fissure caused by the unstable mix of affective attachments to the king and a weak imperial government
These daring disturbers of the public peace : the struggle for property and power in early New Jersey by Brendan McConville ( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the century preceding the American Revolution, bitter conflicts raged in New Jersey over control of the land tenure system. This book examines how the struggle between yeoman farmers and landed gentry shaped public life in the colony. At once a cultural, political, and social history, it carefully delineates the beliefs of rioters and upholders of order, both of whom wanted control over land
New Jersey by Robin S Doak ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Provides a history of the state, discussing the attempts by the Dutch and the Swedes to settle there, the colonization by the British, relations with the Lenni-Lanape tribe, and the use of indentured servants and slaves in the colony. Eye-catching graphics and engaging narrative create a compelling picture of life in colonial New Jersey. Originally settled by the Dutch as part of their "New Netherland," New Jersey did not flourish as a colony until it came under British control in 1664. Readers will learn how the promise of political and religious freedom led to its becoming the first Quaker colony in America and one of the most ethnically diverse. They'll learn how for a while it was divided into East and West Jersey, how it had its own version of the Boston Tea Party, and how its location between New York City and Philadelphia made it the site of nearly 100 battles during the struggle for independence that eventually led to its becoming the nation's third state

"Americans have created the most dynamic, distinctive, and diverse nation in the world in the five centuries since the arrival of Columbus in 1492. Each of these five centuries has witnessed momentous changes and possesses its own unique character and historical identity. American Centuries: The Ideas, Issues, and Values That Shaped U.S. History covers the nation's narrative in its entirety, devoting one volume to each century. By offering substantive articles that analyze foundational topics and themes connecting all five centuries, this five-volume reference allows readers to follow the growth, impact, and evolution of every major issue in U.S. history across 500 years... Volume One: 16th Century focuses on Native American life on the eve of European contact and on early exploration and settlement. Volume Two: 17th Century focuses on life in Virginia, Massachusetts, New York, New Mexico, and other colonies and the establishment of European- and African-American institutions. Volume Three: 18th Century focuses on the growing wealth, diversity, and population of the American colonies, rising tensions with Great Britain, the onset of the American Revolution, the establishment of the United States, and the creation of the Constitution and a new national government. Volume Four: 19th Century focuses on western expansion and the disruption of American Indian life, the spread and conflict over slavery and the Civil War, the creation of the two-party system and extension of suffrage, and the growth of industrialization, urbanization, and immigration. Volume Five: 20th Century focuses on the nation's rise as a world power and global leader in trade and technology; the growth of suburbanization, immigration, and an advanced economy; and the experience of two world wars and the Civil Rights movement."--p.
