Annotation In this Pulitzer prize-winning account, the author examines how the American Revolution, unlike any other event, reshaped society. Wood claims that colonial America, in all of its monarchical deference, was transformed into a democratic and self-reliant force. And he asserts that it was the behavior and desires of ordinary people, not that of their elected officials, that brought about this remarkable change. Pulitzer Prize.
