Crisis of Empire book. Certainly the struggle for empire in the 18th Century was key to the fate of North America. British victory followed by the American Revolution helped to define the modern world. The European nations of Britain, France and Spain were eager for predominance and the trappings of trade, land and prestige.

In fact, as Jeremy Black's impressive new book demonstrates, the American Revolution was a singularly contingent event. It might never have happened, and that provides food for counterfactual thought

In fact, as Jeremy Black's impressive new book demonstrates, the American Revolution was a singularly contingent event. It might never have happened, and that provides food for counterfactual thought. Britain and its American colonies had always squabbled (that is what centres and peripheries do). It makes sense to talk of perennial disgruntlement at the abuse of crown authority, of anger about trade restrictions, and of the colonists' love of local rights and privileges. By and large, however, Britain and the colonies had managed to sustain a mutually beneficial relationship.

Published by Continuum Publishing Corporation. Britain and the USA have helped define much of world history in recent centuries, and the relationship between the two is crucial to this history. This book focuses on a key period in their relationship that moulded the character of the British Empire, the USA and the way the two have interacted since. The rise and crises of empires will always fascinate the observer because in their fate we see much of human history.

British victory followed by the American Revolution helped to define the modern world. The European nations of Britain, France and Spain were eager for predominance and the trappings of trade, land and prestige. Within North America, there were the local agents of these powers and their subjects, who in turn held their own interests and views; whilst the Native Americans were more than simply the passive victims of European expansion.

This fascinating and complex story is told by Black with narrative drive and scholarly acumen.

Chillhunter
Like much of Black's extensive collection of books, this one is nicely conceived, engagingly written, but I cannot help but to have the sense that it was rushed and that if he had spent more time investigating the various strands it would have been more interesting and had more depth. Even so, it's very good.

This, Black's most recent book, is an introduction to the study of the relationship between England and her colonies in North America. Black attempts to cover a broad period of time, from founding to revolt, and with a brief length he is only able to do so much. Like me, some readers may desire a more substantial followup to some of the author's more intriguing points (especially ones with which I debated). However, Black succeeds in demonstrating his most significant point: that a revolt was not foreordained, but that the relationship between England her Thirteen Colonies was much more dynamic than is often portrayed. For students of the Revolutionary War, it is a valuable introduction to the history of the political, cultural, and even military issues of the era.
