Maier’s From Resistance to Revolution is about events leading up to the American Revolution. The Prologue and first two chapters of Atkinson’s The British are Coming provide another perspective on the same subject. What is your take on events leading to the American Revolution, relying on these secondary sources? ALSO utilize the related primary sources we read. For instance, if you look at the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act, the Townshend Acts and/or other British actions and responses to them, including the Writs of Assistance legal dispute, the “official” statements of the British-Americans in response such as the Declaration and Resolves of the First Continental Congress, and/or the British viewpoint represented by Edmund Burke, do these sources support Maier and Atkinson’s analyses, or do they lead you to different conclusions? The Americans were generally doing very well economically and socially. Did they have compelling reasons to go to war with Britain? In short, was there sufficient provocation to explain the necessity of revolution, e.g., because of British impressment, the quartering soldier law, and/or various other British actions? Be specific and, again, rely on the secondary source analyses AND primary sources we read! Or do you think the Americans overreacted? For instance, taxes in Britain were much higher than they were in North America, where there also was a higher percentage of literacy and of property ownership. Were the Americans therefore reckless? Do you think that a revolution was inevitable or did the British, British-Americans or both make mistakes that they could have avoided that would have prevented revolution from occurring? If you think there were particular mistakes, what were they? There is no “right” answer to these questions! I am interested in your explanation and analysis of the issues related to the coming of the American revolution. Be sure to reflect your understanding; for instance, if you are talking about the Townshend Acts, summarily explain why they were enacted and what they said. It also means that while they are certainly relevant and are included here, you need to go beyond the Maier and Atkinson readings that were the subject of your first reading report, both in terms of additional assignments from those texts and primary sources. I am not simply seeking your opinion! It is ESSENTIAL to substantiate your views by relying on the primary and secondary sources we have studied. You do not have to utilize everything. But you do need to rely on sufficient sources to be very convincing – i.e., to “prove” your case. Be sure to cite where you bring your information wether its a quote or piece of information rom the book every single time as follows: (Authors last name, Chapter number)
