Stoeckel, Althea L., Ed.
The essays in this quarterly reflect on recent interpretations of events and persons of the American Revolution. David Kamens questions when the Revolution began and reviews recent literature on the topic. Paul Scherer discusses the influence of American revolutionary ideology on the European wars that followed. David Sloan reinterprets the meaning of a Pennsylvania frontier conflict, long considered a prelude to the larger Revolution. The next series of essays explores the effect of the Revolution on segments and classes of people in the colonies. Staughton Lynd questions the effect of the revolutionary ideology of freedom and democracy on the "rank and file" American. John Van Atta reflects on the plight of the colonists who suffered loss of property and life for their loyality to England. Althea Stoeckel and Joan Kratzer describe the activities and ideas of two prominent American women. Lester Lamon and Elizabeth Glenn focus on the Revolution from the Negro's and Indian's point of view. In conclusion, John Cary reviews the interpretations various historians have given to the Revolution and places in perspective both the older works and the more significant of recent writings.
