British Friends of the American Revolution

Portada
M.E. Sharpe, 1997 M12 3
This volume is the culmination of Jerome Reich's research on conflicting political ideologies current in England and America during the second half of the eighteenth century and those English individuals who attempted--albeit unsuccessfully--to reconcile them. These short chapter studies profile a dozen British men and women, who, for diverse reasons, opposed the policy of the British government toward its thirteen colonies before and during the American Revolution and helped prepare the way for the recognition of the United States as an independent nation.
