This impressive book is about the underlying motive of the revolution: fed up with the condescension of Britain's caste-class laws and govt, the colonists opted for a more level playing field. With a fine-tipped brush Wood paints the 1001 pictures from everyday life of how the colonists pushed back from aristocracy and forged ahead to democracy. A monumental achievement.
