Birth of the Republic Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Birth of the Republic

This account argues the inevitability of the American Revolution after the Stamp Act of 1765, due to the clash between Britain and its colonies in their ideals rather than their economic problems. Beginning with Locke, Morgan states the deep influence Locke had on the colonists to define the problem with their relationship with Britain. The book continues through the creation of the United States with the ratification and establishment of the Constitution and the bill of rights.
