Description

Dealing with five significant works of the American-Revolution era (1776-1820), the book crystallizes strategies of subversion in an intertextual war by authors reformulating the histories of other revolutions they believed shaped the American Revolution. The book exhumes the covert revolutionary histories, both Patriot and Loyalist, which underwrote their dialogue.
