John Adams: hostile to the republicanism of the

MA Thesis on Early American political thought. A study of the development of John Adams's thought, from the Stamp Act of 1765through thirty-five years of public service and a further twenty of reflective retirement.It draws principally upon his published works, Dissertation on the Canon and FeudalLaw, the Novanglus Letters, Defence of the Constitutions, Discourses on Davila; andon his Diary, Autobiography and prolific correspondence with Thomas Jefferson,Benjamin Rush, and others.This examination of his political thought addresses his initial motives for oppositionto the British Government and the way in which this position evolved into a moresystematic theory of government.

Bury the Chains: Prophets and Rebels in the Fight to Free an Empire's Slaves

Bury the Chains: Prophets and Rebels in the

From the author of the widely acclaimed King Leopold's Ghost comes the taut, gripping account of one of the most brilliantly organized social justice campaigns in history -- the fight to free the slaves of the British Empire. In early 1787, twelve men -- a printer, a lawyer, a clergyman, and others united by their hatred of slavery -- came together in a London printing shop and began the world's first grass-roots movement, battling for the rights of people on another continent. Masterfully stoking public opinion, the movement's leaders pioneered a variety of techniques that have been adopted by citizens' movements ever since, from consumer boycotts to wall posters and lapel buttons to celebrity endorsements. A deft chronicle of this groundbreaking antislavery crusade and its powerful enemies, Bury the Chains gives a little-celebrated human rights watershed its due at last.
