Q&A with Kevin Phillips

Q&A

Historian and commentator Kevin Phillips talked about his book, 1775: A Good Year for Revolution, in which he suggests that the year 1775 was a critical launching point of both the Revolutionary War and American independence from Britain. He argued that the year 1776 has incorrectly emerged as a watershed year due to historical hype and confusion. He detailed American colonial successes such as importing vital cannon and gunpowder, enlisting Indian tribes as allies, and launching a trade war with Britain through the Continental Association as examples of 1775's historical significance. Mr. Phillips listed some of his favorite colonial leaders such as Samuel Adams, and ventured his opinions on modern day presidents as well. He also discussed his career in politics and portions of his fourteen other books, including American Theocracy and Bad Money. A video clip of his appearance on “Booknotes” was shown.
