The cause of mankind

The American Revolution changed the world, and it isn’t finished yet.

In this month's Spiked Review, I reviewed Jonathan Israel's The Expanding Blaze: How the American Revolution Ignited the World, 1775-1848. You can read it here.

  • Jefferson and John Adams died on 4 July 1826 - the 50th anniversary on the Declaraton. Your interesting and excellent review of Professsor Israel's book was marred by that small mistake.

  • Don't know how that happened. Thanks for spotting.
