T. H. Breen, The Marketplace of Revolution: How Consumer Politics Shaped American Independence

Breen, T. H. (Fellow, 1983-84; 1995-96)

New York: Oxford University Press, 2022

From the publisher's description:

The Marketplace of Revolution offers a boldly innovative interpretation of the mobilization of ordinary Americans on the eve of independence. Breen explores how colonists who came from very different ethnic and religious backgrounds managed to overcome difference and create a common cause--the consumer boycott--capable of galvanizing resistance.
