Abstract:

America's War of Independence was a crucial time in our history. Thoughtful Americans have pondered such questions as: Did Parliament have the right to interfere in the internal affairs of the American colonies? What were the goals of the increasingly powerful British Parliament toward local government in the American colonies? Why did Britain spend 8,000 pounds to collect 2,000 pounds in taxes in New York? Why did Britain allow the near encirclement of the Protestant American colonies by French Catholicism? What is the Prohibitory Act? Why has it been neglected and ignored by most modern historians? Did the Americans revolt, or were they forced out of the Empire by an act of Parliament? The answers to these and other questions will deepen your appreciation and broaden your understanding of the American "Revolution."--Back cover.
