Summary

The War fo Independence had a substantial impact on the lives of all Americans, establishing a nation and confirming American identity. The War for Independence and the Transformation of American Society focuses on a conflict which was both civil war and revolution and assesses how Americans met the challenges of adapting to the ideals of Independence and Republicanism.
The war effected political reconstruction and brought economic self sufficiency and expansion, but it also brought oppression of dissenting and ethnic minorities, broadened the divide between the affluent and the poor and strengthened the institution of slavery.
Focusing on the climate of war itself and its effects on the lives of those who lived through it, this book includes discussion of:
*Recruitment and Society
*The Home Front
*Constraints on Liberty
*Women and family during the war years
*African Americans and Native Americans
The War for Independence is a fascinating account of the wider dimension to the meaning of the American Revolution.
