In Peripheries and Center (1986) Greene re-examined the long debate between Britain and the colonies over how far the British Parliament’s authority extended in the colonies. The book made a case for the proposition that the dispute was primarily a legal and constitutional one over the nature of the imperial constitution, similar to legal historians writing at the same time, especially John P.

Most books I bought in grad school went into my library pile in the corner of my old room at mom's house. One day, I'll bring them all back out, stamp them with my personalized book marker, and place them one-by-one on a series of majestic hardwood bookshelves in whatever ramshackle abandoned Victorian B&B I choose to reside in.

But this one...no, this one stayed beside my bed, in the pile that I read when I'm lying awake because my mother's house is too quiet, or because I retreated upstairs during the holidays the same way I used to in high school.

I haven't even read that many books on the Revolution, a fault that I avoid talking about as a patriotic American. The seminar of which I was a member was focused primarily on colonial America's relationship with Great Britain, and this book tells the tale better than no other. Granted, it doesn't tell that tale in a very colorful or accessible way, but it was grad school and accessibility was thought on par with cretinism. Greene follows the legal developments surrounding the relationship, primarily that of the ambiguity of colonial citizenship, the different powers of the King (in Parliament, especially), the confusion regarding England's lack of a written constitution, and the growing unrest resulting from taxation without representation.

All in all, Greene finally concludes that this mess was really all a byproduct of one overarching dispute over how much power a central authority should be granted over its peripheral holdings. Sound familiar? Greene even takes it a step further in his final chapter to discuss the evolution of this thinking once America was established, leading us all the way up to another military confrontation that dealt with the very same issue in the middle of the 19th Century.

It's dry at first, but it's short and there is a ton of great history jam packed into such a tiny manuscript. A must-own book for students of The Revolution, highly recommended for all other historians, and certainly worth checking out for the avid reader.

focuses on politics. does not explain the historical events just the political reactions surrounding them. full of primary sources. tough but rewarding reading.
