American insurgents, American patriots : the revolution of the people by T. H Breen( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before there could be a revolution, there was a rebellion; before patriots, there were insurgents. Challenging decades of received wisdom, T.H. Breen's strikingly original book explains how ordinary Americans-- most of them members of farm families living in small communities-- were drawn into a successful insurgency against imperial authority. This is the compelling story of our national political origins that most Americans do not know. It is a story of rumor, charity, vengeance, and restraint. American insurgents, American patriots reminds us that revolutions are violent events. They provoke passion and rage, a willingness to use violence to achieve political ends, a deep sense of betrayal, and a strong religious conviction that God expects an oppressed people to defend their rights. The American Revolution was no exception."--Jacket
The marketplace of revolution : how consumer politics shaped American independence by T. H Breen( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Marketplace of Revolution argues that the colonists' shared experience as consumers in a new imperial economy afforded them the cultural resources that they needed to develop a radical strategy of political protest - the consumer boycott. Never before had a mass political movement organized itself around disruption of the marketplace. As Breen demonstrates, often through anecdotes about obscure Americans, communal rituals of shared sacrifice provided an effective means to educate and energize a dispersed populace. The boycott movement - the signature of American resistance - invited colonists traditionally excluded from formal political processes to voice their opinions about liberty and rights within a revolutionary marketplace, an open, raucous public forum that defined itself around subscription lists passed door-to-door, voluntary associations, street protests, destruction of imported British goods, and incendiary newspaper exchanges. Within these exchanges was born a new form of politics in which ordinary men and women - precisely the people most often overlooked in traditional accounts of revolution - experienced an exhilarating surge of empowerment." "Breen re-creates an "empire of goods" that transformed everyday life during the mid-eighteenth century. Imported manufactured items flooded into the homes of colonists from New Hampshire to Georgia. The Marketplace of Revolution explains how at a moment of political crisis Americans gave political meaning to the pursuit of happiness and learned how to make goods speak to power."--Jacket

Tobacco culture : the mentality of the great Tidewater planters on the eve of Revolution by T. H Breen( Book )

36 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great Tidewater planters of mid-eighteenth-century Virginia were fathers of the American Revolution. Perhaps first and foremost, they were also anxious tobacco farmers, harried by a demanding planting cycle, trans-Atlantic shipping risks, and their uneasy relations with English agents. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and their contemporaries lived in a world that was dominated by questions of debt from across an ocean but also one that stressed personal autonomy." "T. H. Breen's study of this tobacco culture focuses on how elite planters gave meaning to existence. He examines the value-laden relationships - found in both the fields and marketplaces - that led from tobacco to politics, from agrarian experience to political protest, and finally to a break with the political and economic system that they believed threatened both personal independence and honor."--Jacket

Colonial America in an Atlantic world : a story of creative interaction by T. H Breen( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second edition of Colonial America in an Atlantic World, like the first, responds to a growing interest among teachers and students in a broad and exciting field commonly known as Atlantic History. The approach greatly expands the human and physical boundaries of the subject, which once only looked at white settlers organizing new forms of religion and government. This traditional perspective left too many people out of the story. We have, therefore, tried to present the history of Colonial America in terms of dynamic interaction among the peoples of four continents over several centuries. The world in which these diverse peoples fought, traded, befriended, allied, betrayed one another, made love, married, and bore children was an extraordinarily complex and fluid multiplicity of communities, a vast region in which nations remained in constant flux from fifteenth century through the end of the eighteenth and beyond"--Provided by publisher
