“Lovejoy has now related this whole [period of history] more fully than it has ever been told before. His research is thorough, and his reach in time and space is impressive . . . a judicious and significant book, the best we now have on the subject”—New York Times Book Review

An outstanding examination of the Crises that lead to the colonial rebellions of 1689.

Reviews / Endorsements

“A long-awaited assessment of those critical upheavals that disrupted the American colonies from Bacon’s Rebellion in 1676 to the major revolts in New England, New York, and Maryland in 1689. [Lovejoy’s] interpretation is decidedly neo-Whig, which should provoke a fine narrative of the period and a most provocative comparison of these important revolutions, a comparison that should challenge all students of the colonial political process.”The American Historical Review

“A meticulously detailed and sometimes quite witty exploration of the circumstances, events and ideas that culminated in [the American colonial] rebellions and the contribution of the Glorious Revolution, with its own civil war and religious turmoil, to them.” Publishers Weekly

The Glorious Revolution in America is a testament to the high standards of scholarship of David Lovejoy. The detailed reconstruction of interacting events in England and the North American colonies during the 1670’s and 1680’s is superbly documented.” New England Quarterly

“Professor Lovejoy has given us for the first time a comprehensive picture of the Glorious Revolution as it affected the colonies that less than a century later declared their independence. The result is a new perspective on the American Revolution.” Edmund S. Morgan, Yale University
