Summary
Publisher description: What has the American Revolution meant to Americans during the two centuries since it began? In this book Kammen once again dispels the mists of cultural misunderstanding and national self-deception as he reveals to us how this, the most central event in our past, has been seen by those in the mainstream of our culture as well as by dissenting social critics. The result is a fresh and unprecedented contribution to American historical writing and to American self-knowledge
