The tax on tea was one of the clauses of the Townshend Acts. Hulton Archive/Getty Images. Norfolk stirred up fears of a slave insurrection in the South, Randall says.

Scars of Independence makes lookers-on of us all, forcing readers to confront the visceral realities of a conflict too .

Scars of Independence makes lookers-on of us all, forcing readers to confront the visceral realities of a conflict too often bathed in warm, nostalgic light. A German trained in England as a historian of the British Empire, Hoock trumpets the novelty of his angle of vision in what he calls the first book on the American Revolution and the Revolutionary War to adopt violence as its central analytical and narrative focus. From the perspective of George III’s ministry, the American cause was an insurgency: an uprising of once (and rightfully) loyal subjects rather than a conflict between sovereign rival nations.

About An American Insurrection.

Suppose the social fabric tore. Suppose uninformed or misinformed citizens, unmindful of how taxes translate into public services, chose not to support their government; to let the institutions wither away. How could it happen? What might the aftermath look like? With the system in collapse, can Americans restore trust in the miracle of self government? Imagine a complex timepiece, scattered into its' many parts, and no one knows how to put it back together again; the watchmakers long since dead. Can Americans revive the institutions that have been built up over the years from the model of the Founding Father's? How do you rebuild the infrastructure of a modern society? Examine the remarkable thing called 'self-government' by seeing what it would be like should it fail through neglect of its' citizens. Could a small faction seize power while the public is not paying attention? This is a chilling view of an American Insurrection.
