Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To Great Britain in the seventeenth century, and then to the fledgling United States, no problem was more urgent than how to divide authority between local powers and the governing central power. In this book the noted colonial historian Jack P. Greene traces the search for solutions.

Synopsis:
