Conceived as a Bicentennial contribu-tion to our understanding of the enor-mously complex phenomenon that was the American Revolution, this collec-tion of original essays by some of this country's most distinguished scholars sheds new light and casts new perspec-tives on aspects of the Revolutionary era. The contributors are: Robert E. Brown (Emeritus Professor of History, Michigan State University), Jack P. Greene (Andrew Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Johns Hopkins), Don Higginbotham (Professor of Amer-ican History, University of North Carolina), James Morton Smith (Di-rector, Henry Francis du Pont Winter-thur Museum), and Carl Ubbelohde (Henry Elridge Bourne Professor of History at Case Western Reserve). The essays cover such topics as the decision to rebel, the nature of the revolution, and the personalities of the leaders. Taken together, they provide unusually searching analyses, and will be of interest to general readers as well as specialists.
