Abstract:
The American Revolution has generated a rich historiography covering innumerable aspects; ranging from causation to consequences, political ideologies to social change; specific locales to global context; and exploring the significant themes of race, class and gender. However, despite this extensive coverage, there remains a disjuncture at the heart of interpretations of the Revolution between the principles that inspired it and the violence that sustained it. By reconstructing the boundaries of coercion this bifurcation can be repaired and the moral, intellectual, political and social constraints of force revealed.
