This book examines a hitherto neglected aspect of the War of American Independence, providing the first wide-ranging exploration of the impact of this conflict upon the economy, society, and culture of the British Isles. Stephen Conway sheds new light on recent debates about the war-waging efficiency of the British state and on the role of war in the creation of a British national identity. This is a probing account of the profound impact of the war which further challenges the established model of eighteenth-century wars as being 'limited' in the demands and effects.

About the Author:

Stephen Conway is a Reader in History, University College London.

Review:


"This recent contribution to a growing effort to place the American Revolution within the context of British domestic affairs is one of the broadest ranging....This stimulating volume will appeal to anyone with a serious interest in the impact of the American war on the four nations of Britain or their ability to meet challenges of the postwar era."--History: Reviews of New Books


"Stephen Conway has produced an excellent and important book, one that is provocative and wide-ranging. His study is based on a comprehensive survey of the relevant British, Irish, and American archives as well as an extensive and sophisticated reading of the secondary literature. His research is impeccable, his writing fluent, and his thesis important and subtly argued--all in all, a model of modern scholarship. It deserves a broad audience and should command the attention of all those interested in the intersection of military and social history as well as students of the American Revolution and eighteenth-century Britain."--The Journal of Military History

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book examines a hitherto neglected aspect of the War of American Independence, providing the first wide- ranging account of the impact of this eighteenth-century conflict upon the politics, economy, society, and culture of the British Isles. The author examines the level of military participation - which was much greater than is usually appreciated - and explores the war s effects on subjects as varied as parliamentary reform, religious toleration, and attitudes to empire. The book casts new light upon recent debate about the war-waging efficiency of the British state and the role of war in the creation of a sense of Britishness . The thematic chapters are supplemented by local case-studies of six very different communities the length and breadth of the British Isles. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780199254552
