This volume encapsulates the revolution that changed the English colonies in America to the United States of America. Middlekauff does a wonderful job of covering the three main eras that comprise the American Revolution: The Eve of the Revolution, The Revolutionary War, and the Constitution. Perhaps Middlekauff didn’t describe a social revolution in the radical terms that Wood did in his book, but he did cover those aspects of the Revolution too.

What this book does well is tie together the disparate range of topics covered in an in-depth study of the American Revolution.
