Summary: "The American Revolution Reborn parts company with the Revolution of our popular imagination and diverges from the work done by historians of the era from the past half-century. In the first section, 'Civil Wars, ' contributors rethink the heroic terms of Revolutionary-era allegiance and refute the idea of patriotic consensus. In the following section, 'Wider Horizons, ' essayists destabilize the historiographical inevitability of America as a nation. The studies gathered in the third section, 'New Directions, ' present new possibilities for scholarship on the American Revolution. And the last section, titled 'Legacies, ' collects essays that deal with the long afterlife of the Revolution and its effects on immigration, geography, and international politics."--Provided by publisher.
