Description
Thousands of British American mainland colonists rejected the War for American Independence in the 1770s. Shunning rebel violence as unnecessary, unlawful, and unnatural, they emphasized the natural ties of blood, kinship, language, and religion that united the colonies to Britain, and hoped that British military strength would crush the rebellion and free the colonies to renegotiate their return to the empire.

"A new and inviting Loyalist point of entry into the complexity of the American Revolution."—Robert M. Calhoon

"Ruma Chopra's book constitutes a fresh look at an intractable subject—the emergence of loyalist opposition to a revolution made in the name of liberty and virtue. The loyalists, she argues, saw an 'unnatural rebellion' when revolutionaries found 'a glorious cause.' In a close examination of loyalists in New York City, she shows that the differences between the two groups were sharp even though they shared many of the same values. Chopra's book is not an apology for the loyalists. Rather it is a sensitive, yet probing, study of their commitments and circumstances. All in all, it is a book impressive in its rich insights and analytical power."—Robert Middlekauff
