How and why did the farmers, hill people, city lawyers, wealthy plantation owners and other completely disparate peoples - some  of them extremely contrary - join the American revolution?  It's a complex, fascinating story, way beyond the handy school version, and Phillips has done a superb job of laying it all out.  A valuable addition to the ongoing historical record.
