Description

The Fault Lines of Empire is a fascinating comparative study of two communities in the early modern British Empire--one in Massachusetts, the other in Nova Scotia. Elizabeth Mancke focuses on these two locations to examine how British attempts at reforming their empire impacted the development of divergent political customs in the United States and Canada.

Reviews
