“Gordon S. Wood’s grasp of the dynamics of the Imperial debate that culminated in American independence is unsurpassed. By including all sides of the controversy Wood has created the most discriminating and revealing collection of sources we have on the emerging ideology of the Revolution.” Richard D. Brown, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor of History, Emeritus, at the University of Connecticut
“These volumes make a valuable contribution to the learning and teaching of American history. The men who wrote the script for national independence were strong, daring thinkers and skilled writers, with their lives at stake and their conscience in their pens. Their great gift to us lives on in this splendid collection.” Michael McGiffert, Editor Emeritus, The William and Mary Quarterly
