Format: Paperback
A useful summary and critique of the changing paradigms of the historiography of the American Revolution as it shifts ground between the Lockean interpretations and the more recent revisionist accounts based on the issues of civic republicanism
proposed by Pocock in his Machiavellian Moment. Another work similar to this is Diggins' The Lost Soul of American Politics (and also On Hallowed Ground). The view of Locke from the left (entirely useful up to a point) has long created a kind of mental block as to this seminal figure, but it was hard to disown him from his seminal place in the generation of modern liberalism, and it is just as hard to see how Machiavellian republicanism can be taken as a substitute. But then that's the debate, and a review of the different perspectives is well served by this reflective account, among others.
