A Struggle for Power: The American Revolution

by

A Struggle for Power: The American Revolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of the great political journalists of our time comes a boldly argued reinterpretation of the central event in our collective past, a book that portrays the American Revolution not as a clash of ideologies but as a Machiavellian struggle for power.

Deftly orchestrating a mass of documents and historical writings that explore the viewpoints of figures from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to Robert Walpole and King George III, Draper reveals the distant origins of the contest between English notions of sovereignty and American strivings for autonomy. Lucidly written and provocatively illuminating, A Struggle for Power dramatically transforms our understanding of our history.
