It goes on to examine the British policies towards the colonies and how these laid the path to American independence and, ultimately, the Constitution. The extent to which a revolution occurred is analyzed, and the narrative concludes by looking at the impact of this independence on Britain and America. Throughout the book, key dates, terms, and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips written by examiners for the AQA and Edexcel exam specifications provide the opportunity to develop exam skills.
