Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1971. First Edition, Fifth Printing. 

Signed, dated, and inscribed by Bailyn.

Awarded both the Pulitzer and Bancroft Prizes, Bailyn's work is considered one of the most influential studies of the American Revolution published during the 20th century and was hailed at its first appearance as “the most brilliant study of the meaning of the Revolution to appear in a generation.”

In an interview for Bailyn's New York Times obituary in 2008, 1993 Pulitzer winner (and former student of Bailyn's) Gordon S. Wood said “He has transformed the field of early American history as much as any single person could...He transformed the history of education. He turned over our entire interpretation of the Revolution. He changed the way we think about immigration. Almost every single thing he did had a profound impact on the field.”

Lower spine a little rubbed, else a nearly fine copy in very good, clipped dust wrapper, spine tanned, extremities rubbed, a few edge tears and chips.

An uncommon book to find signed -- as of this writing, no other copy appears in the marketplace.
