More than 1,500 new and revised entries reaffirm Col. Mark M. Boatner III's Encyclopedia of the American Revolution's second edition as an enduring classic. This A-to-Z ready-reference profiles both lesser-known and famous battles throughout the period 1763-1783. While interesting biographies of key participants comprise about one third of the two-volume set, the majority of articles cover campaigns and strategy, battles, skirmishes, naval actions, weaponry, political issues and events, popular legends, and the participation of the European powers. Approximately 120 illustrations and 90 maps and line art images coordinate with accessible text to clearly present the campaigns and tactics, and a comprehensive thematic outline concisely frames events.

This edition includes new articles on: the Frontier; Violence; Mobilization; Religion; Women; African Americans, and Historiography, along with many topics of current interest to historians.

Also included in the Encyclopedia is an update of Boatner's Landmarks of the American Revolution. This state-by-state guide skillfully demonstrates the "power of places."

"Although these titles are available seperately, libraries would do well to replace both of the originals with these to new editions." --ARBA, March 2007
