Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 014303720X, Paperback)
In this audacious recasting of the American Revolution, distinguished historian Gary Nash offers a profound new way of thinking about the struggle to create this country, introducing readers to a coalition of patriots from all classes and races of American society. From millennialist preachers to enslaved Africans, disgruntled women to aggrieved Indians, the people so vividly portrayed in this book did not all agree or succeed, but during the exhilarating and messy years of this country's birth, they laid down ideas that have become part of our inheritance and ideals toward which we still strive today.

An exploration of the ideas and radical sentiments that prompted the American Revolution argues that the war was a people's revolution and civil war, as well as an insurrection against colonial control.
