by Douglass, Elisha P

Condition: Near Fine/N/A


Quadrangle Paperbacks, Chicago, Illinois, 1965. Third Printing. Paperback. Near Fine/N/A. red & brown titles spine (faded); cover design by Stu Gross; "While the colonists strove to break the tie with England, farmers and artisans saw the Revolution not as an end in itself but as a means of building a new society. This less privileged group within Revolutionary ranks was determined to obtain equal political rights for all adult males and a government in which the will of the majority of citizens would be the ultimate authority. Men of substance, though sincerely devoted to the cause of liberty, rejected schemes that might disturb the existing system. The ensuing struggle laid the foundation for a modern American democracy. The political and ideological controversies that developed out of the attempts to organize new state governments during the Revolutionary period are brought into sharp focus in this provocative study which shows that while the main stream was relatively conservative, this 'conservatism' of the Revolution was itself shaped by the existence of a movement farther to the left. No one after reading the book will feel inclined to dismiss his revolutionary democrats as minor characters in the play."; previous owner's name on pre-title page; including index - 368 pages.
