From the end of the Seven Years War to the British acceptance of complete American Independence, British colonial policy was the subject of an intense print debate on both sides of the Atlantic. Until now, scholarly attention has focused on the American literature. This eight volume facsimile edition of selected rare British pamphlets widens the debate. British opinion on the American crisis was sharply divided. What was the constitutional legitimacy of Britain's American policies? Should the colonies be forcefully subdued? Should their bid for independence continue unopposed? Or should peaceful attempts at reconciliation aim to keep them within the British Empire? If the colonies were lost, what would the consequences be for Britain? The pamphlets reproduced here represent the multi-faceted debate on both sides of the political divide in Britain. They are organised chronologically in two parts, taking the start of American armed resistance in 1775 as the dividing point. All of these rare documents are republished for the first time and are reproduced in full.
