The contrarian historian and analyst upends the conventional reading of the American Revolution

In 1775, iconoclastic historian and bestselling author Kevin Phillips punctures the myth that 1776 was the watershed year of the American Revolution. He suggests that the great events and confrontations of 1775—Congress’s belligerent economic ultimatums to Britain, New England’s rage militaire, the exodus of British troops and expulsion of royal governors up and down the seaboard, and the new provincial congresses and hundreds of local  committees that quickly reconstituted local authority in Patriot hands­—achieved a  sweeping Patriot control of territory and local government that Britain was never able to overcome.  These each added to the Revolution’s essential momentum so when the British finally attacked in great strength the following year, they could not regain the control they had lost in 1775.

Analyzing the political climate, economic structures, and military preparations, as well as the roles of ethnicity, religion, and class, Phillips tackles the eighteenth century with the same skill and insights he has shown in analyzing contemporary politics and economics.  The result is a dramatic narrative brimming with original insights. 1775 revolutionizes our understanding of America’s origins.

Book Description Viking. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Book Condition: New. What if the year we have long commemorated as America's defining moment was in fact misleading? The author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist The Cousins' Wars and the bestseller American Dynasty upends the conventional reading of the American Revolution by suggesting that the most important year was 1775, when America's commitment to revolution took bloody and irreversible shape. Focusing on the great battlefields and events of 1775—Congress's warlike economic ultimatums to the king and Parliament, the panicked concentration of British troops in Boston, the expulsion of royal governors, and the new provincial congresses and committees that reconstituted local authority in patriot hands—Kevin Phillips's history is a chronicle of the grassroots movements that brought the founders' vision to fruition. 628.

"Seventeen seventy-five was the year in which Patriots captured British forts and fought battles from the Canadian frontier to the Carolinas, obtained the needed gunpowder in machinations that reached from the Baltic to West Africa and the Caribbean, and orchestrated the critical months of nation building in the backrooms of a secrecy-shrouded Congress. As Phillips writes, "The political realignment achieved amid revolution was unique--no other has come with simultaneous ballots and bullets." Hard cover in new condition. Text block clean and tight.
