This book tells the full story of an iconic episode in American history—the Boston Tea Party—exploding myths, exploring the unique city life of 18th-century Boston, and setting this audacious prelude to the American Revolution in a global context. 

Benjamin L. Carp illuminates how a determined group of New Englanders shook the foundations of the British Empire, and what this has meant for Americans since. Joining Carp in conversation will be David Waldstreicher, professor of history and American studies at CUNY.
