Preview not available


Staughton Lynd and David Waldstreicher attempt to cut across old divisions in the historiography of the American Revolution between whigs and progressives (or neo-whigs and neo-progressives) to argue that the Revolution was a colonial independence movement and the reasons for it were fundamentally economic. Robert G. Parkinson, Jack Rakove, Barbara Clark Smith, and Michael A. McDonnell respond to the essay; the Forum concludes with Lynd and Waldstreicher’s reply.
