A short history of the "rise of that historical movement which culminates in American secession from the British Empire. Includes descriptions of the individual colonies and their characteristics.”

“Professor Gipson’s magisterial narrative of the Revolutionary movement within the thirteen American colonies meets both the special needs of the editors and the high standards of the author—an achievement that is not, as we have learned from other books in other series, the easiest thing in the scholarly world to bring off successfully. Out of the massive rock of this knowledge and understanding of the British Empire in America, he has carved a gem of descriptive narration and reflective judgment. The Coming of the Revolution is ‘pure Gipson,’ that is to say, a book about early America that is documented with severity, written with clarity, and marked by a measured, one might almost say Franklinian, affection for the old Empire.”—CLINTON ROSSITER, The Annals of The American Academy for Political and Social Science

“Like all his work, this bears all the marks of sound learning, just temper, and love of truth and reality. This, surely, is the best short history of the rise of that historical movement which culminates in American secession from the British Empire.”—ROSS J. S. HOFFMAN, Fordham University
