Summary

Summary

America was founded for both practical and ideological reasons: not only as a haven of liberty, but also as a response to Britain's excessive taxation and political mismanagement of the colonies. Through a wide selection of historical speeches, this volume examines the circumstances and ideas that instigated the American Revolution, along with the political, economic and social issues that defined the early years of the union.
