In this fascinating work, Carp shows how these various urban meeting places provided the tinder and spark for the American Revolution, focusing on colonial America's five most populous cities -- particularly Boston's waterfront community, New York taverngoers, Newport congregations, Charleston's elite patriarchy, and the common people who gathered outside Philadelphia's State House. He describes how the cities became the flashpoints for legislative protests, committee meetings, massive outdoor gatherings, newspaper harangues, boycotts, customs evasion, violence, and riots -- all of which laid the groundwork for war"--P.
