Britain and the American Colonies 1740-89

This title investigates the events which led to the British domination of the North American colonies during its conflict with France, and the resulting tensions which followed this success. It goes on to examine the British policies towards the colonies and how these laid the path to American independence and ultimately, the Constitution. The extent to which a revolution occurred is analysed and the narrative concludes by looking at the impact of this independence on Britain and America.
