Description
(Finalist for the 2009 Francis Parkman Prize) Ignoring British prohibitions intended to end North America's trade with the French during the Seven Years' War (also known as the French and Indian War, 1754–1763), New York's merchant elite continued their thriving business in the French West Indies, insisting that it was protected by long practice and British commercial law. But the government in London viewed it as treachery, and its subsequent efforts to discipline North American commerce inflamed the colonists. Through fast-moving events and vivid depictions of spies, street riots, exotic settings, informers, courtroom dramas, interdictions on the high seas, ruthless businessmen, and political intrigues, Thomas Truxes brings 18th-century New York and the Atlantic world to life.

"Few history books make an original scholarly argument and rivet the reader's attention from start to finish. Defying Empire does both: a remarkable, rewarding book."—Fred Anderson
