8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Brady Simmons on June 27, 2000
Herbert Aptheker presents a new idea on the nature of the American revolution. In this book, he presents that the American Revolution was not a revolution in the traditional sense, but rather the first successful colonial rebellion in the world. It was not a revolution because there was no sense of nation until after the revolution started. There were no significant social or cultural changes that came about from the actions of the Americans. Aptheker shows considerable amount of proof to support his thesis and does a good job at proving his point. He defines a revolution and a rebellion and gives an example or each. He gives the causes that made the colonies rebel against England. And he gives some of the significant effects of the war for the colonies. The causes of the conflict derive from social contradiction. The reason why there was a failure to compromise was due to the fact that the contradiction could not be compromised. The only way that the Colonies and England could settle their problems was through war. The antagonism, Britain, had to be removed. Things were happening in Britain that was changing the attitudes that she held for her American colonies. The Industrial Revolution needed a market and raw materials that were bot to be found in Britain. Britain turned to the colonies as a source of materials and a captive market for her finished goods. The trade laws all favored Britain because it was in her interests to keep the balance of trade on her side. Of the trade acts enacted against the colonies, the worst were the Sugar and Stamp Acts. The Sugar Act put a duty on molasses, refined sugar, wine, silk, and indigo. It also banned the importation of foreign liquors. All duties had to be paid in silver, depleting the stores that the colonies had.Read more ›
