Abstract:

Among scholars there has been during the last twenty years a decided modification in the old views of the causes which led to the American Revolution. This important book by the head of the history department in the University of Michigan is the first in which the results of these investigations and reconsiderations -- supplemented by twenty years of investigation by the author in the archives of America, France, and England -- have been used as a basis for a history that is at once illuminating, authoritative, and distinctly stimulating for the general reader as well as for the historical student. - Jacket.
