An outstanding examination of the crises that lead to the colonial rebellions of 1689. A finalist for the National Book Award for history in 1973, the book is now available in paperback with a 1987 introduction by the author. "Lovejoy has now related this whole [period of history] more fully than it has ever been told before. His research is thorough, and his reach in time and space is impressive . . . a judicious and significant book, the best we now have on the subject"-- New York Times Book Review. "A long-awaited assessment of those critical upheavals that disrupted the American colonies from Bacon's Rebellion in 1676 to the major revolts in New England, New York, and Maryland in 1689. [Lovejoy's] interpretation is decidedly neo-Whig, which should provoke a fine narrative of the period and a most provocative comparison of these important revolutions, a comparison that should challenge all students of the colonial political process." - The American Historical Review DAVID S.

Lovejoy has now related this whole [period of history] more fully than it has ever been told before. His research is thorough, and his reach in time and space is impressive . . . a judicious and significant book, the best we now have on the subject New York Times Book Review"
A long-awaited assessment of those critical upheavals that disrupted the American colonies from Bacon s Rebellion in 1676 to the major revolts in New England, New York, and Maryland in 1689. [Lovejoy s] interpretation is decidedly neo-Whig, which should provoke a fine narrative of the period and a most provocative comparison of these important revolutions, a comparison that should challenge all students of the colonial political process. The American Historical Review"
A meticulously detailed and sometimes quite witty exploration of the circumstances, events and ideas that culminated in [the American colonial] rebellions and the contribution of the Glorious Revolution, with its own civil war and religious turmoil, to them. Publishers Weekly"
The Glorious Revolution in America is a testament to the high standards of scholarship of David Lovejoy. The detailed reconstruction of interacting events in England and the North American colonies during the 1670 s and 1680 s is superbly documented. New England Quarterly"
