Description
This unique comparative history of three revolutions in the Americas—the American Revolution of 1776, the 1791 slave revolt in the French colony that became Haiti, and the prolonged Spanish American struggle for independence that ended 50 years later—defines the characteristics that distinguished each upheaval. Historian Lester Langley explores the legacies of the revolutionary age and reveals how they affect virtually every modern political issue.

"Langley's formidable book cautions us against self-congratulation by comparing our Revolution ... with other American revolutions.... His readers may never see the formative years of the United States in quite the same way."—NYTBR
