The independence movement came to a head in 1775 and 1776, with the colonies in open revolt. The British asked themselves: What should we do? This course will look especially at Adam Smith, Edmund Burke, and Josiah Tucker on that matter, as well as the broader issue of how British thought influenced the American Founding.  Readings will include basic documents and core works, including much of The Federalist Papers.
