Benjamin Franklin and the Ends of Empire

Carla J. Mulford

  • Provides a painstakingly-researched, important analysis of Franklin's thoughts on economics, the environment, politics, and society
  • Argues that Franklin's rejection of the British Empire was a gradual process, with three key stages
  • Contends that Franklin's turn against the Empire was apparent as early as the mid-1750s
