Summary
"Looking at the Revolution in Virginia from the bottom up, The Politics of War demonstrates how contests over waging war shaped society and the emerging new political settlement. With its insights into the mobilization of popular support, the exposure of social rifts, and the inversion of power relations, McDonnell's analysis is relevant to any society at war."--BOOK JACKET
