The American Revolution Series is a four-part narrative in which author James Thompson explains how Americans exercising their political right of Consent transformed their enlightened government “of, by, and for the people” into the hierarchical despotism Alexis de Tocqueville warned against.
In this book, author James Thompson examines the political methods of John Wilkes and Sam Adams. English placeman John Wilkes developed his method in the early 1760s, Thompson explains, to create a place for himself in England's governing class.
