The foremost scholar on the subject

Along with Bernard Bailyn, Gordon Wood (who was immortalized to the non-academic world in GOOD WILL HUNTING, when Will accused the Harvard intellectual bully in the bar of plagiarizing his arguments from Wood) is the foremost authority of his generation on the ideological sources of the American Revolution. I first read this when it came out in hardback and have enjoyed relistening to it now that it is in audio format. I thoroughly recommend this superb survey of the subject. For further reading/listening, go to the printed copy of the book and look over his marvelous annotated guide for further reading.
