Liberty’s Exiles: American Loyalists in the Revolutionary World by Maya Jasanoff

NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD WINNER

At the end of the American Revolution, sixty thousand Americans loyal to the British cause fled the U.S. and became refugees throughout the British Empire. This is their story. This surprising new account of the founding of the U.S. and the shaping of the post-revolutionary world traces extraordinary journeys of individuals and families, White, Black and indigenous people. Ambitious, original, and personality-filled, this book is at once an intimate narrative history and a provocative analysis that changes how we see the revolution’s “losers” and their legacies.   – excerpt from Amazon.com
