The paper argues that the American Revolution was not one moment in time that outlined the rest of history, but was rather multiple events that greatly effected the rise of revolution and the eventual overthrow of the British monarchy. The paper examines Paul S. Boyer's book, "The Enduring Vision: A History of the American People" that outlines the history of the New World, breaking down its lifespan in two parts. The paper then shows how the American Revolution was a series of revolts on social, economical and political fronts.
From the Paper:"Boyer's book, The Enduring Vision: A History of the American People, outlines the history of the New World, breaking down its lifespan in two parts. The first part deals with discovery and early colonization and the second part describes the events from the Reconstruction period to the growing tension that led to the Civil War. As noted by the author, there are multiple elements in the development of the New World as the new 'utopia'. North America provided what many European discoverers were seeking in the Middle East: An abundance of land and rich resources. Subsequently, the battle for power between the British, French and Spanish set the tone for decades to come, as various European cultures began to colonize the eastern part of North America."
