The basic ideas of the Patriot cause are celebrated and taught from grade school to graduate school. But what about the ideas of those--perhaps one-third of the American population--who opposed the Revolution? Most Americans know little or nothing about those who remained loyal to Great Britain, and much of what they know is not true. God against the Revolution addresses this lacuna in our understanding of US history by providing the first comprehensive presentation of the political thought of the American Loyalists. They were also Americans who loved the land in which they lived and their argument is a significant missing piece of Revolutionary-era American political thought. The more effective presenters of their position were clergymen, and God against the Revolution is a study of the arguments--biblical, philosophical, and legal--made by Loyalist ministers"--"@en ;
