Reviews
"This exceptionally insightful and richly provocative study deserves to be widely read and debated."--Asheesh Kapur Siddique, Journal of British Studies
"Why did the British empire change in the later eighteenth century from one predominantly of liberty to one predominantly of authority and control? James Vaughn's book is a most ambitious attempt to resolve this great problem. All scholars will in future have to pay close attention to his findings." - P. J. Marshall, author of The Making and Unmaking of Empires
"Carefully researched and argued, this courageous book brings the radical Whigs and imperialism into sharp focus. The emphasis on capitalism and bourgeois ideology unapologetically reminds us of the British Marxists, a correction long overdue. Let the debate begin!" - Margaret C. Jacob, author of The Radical Enlightenment

"This is an immensely important work which will have a powerful and contentious impact. Vaughn takes a fresh approach and lays out a persuasive case which will make his work a clear leader in its field."--Allan MacInnes, University of Strathclyde
