America’s Revolution was Britain’s American War. In this conference held at the Huntington Library in September 2012, international scholars considered the events of 1763 to 1783 from the perspective of Britain and its “other” colonies, focusing on the many ways the American War reshaped society, politics, and culture at home and abroad. The conference’s conveners, Edward G. Gray and Jane Kamensky, are also editors of a new volume of essays, “The Oxford Handbook of the American Revolution” (Oxford University Press, 2012). Several presenters at the conference are also contributors to that new book.
