Brendan mcconville the great cycle the professional study of the american revolution 1960 2015

Brendan McConville (born 1965) is an author and professor of history at Boston University. His books on American History include The King's Three Faces (University of Carolina Press, 2006) and The American Revolution, 1763-1789 (Longman, 2008).



McConville was educated at Brown University and Reed College, Portland. His research focuses on the intersection of politics and social developments in Early America, and his interests include colonial history and the English Reformation.


After the release of These Daring Disturbers of the Public Peace, Michael Bellesiles wrote that "Brendan McConville has produced an outstanding work of social history. A few scholars have looked briefly at New Jersey's 1740s land riots, but McConville is the first to place these events in their deep historical context."

In a review of The King's Three Faces for Itinerario: International Journal on the History of European Expansion and Global Interaction, Charles W. A. Prior writes that McConville "brings a great deal of fresh material to light." In Common-place: The Interactive Journal of Early American Life, Benjamin Irvin called the book "a brilliant, bounding study of Anglo-American political culture." The book was also reviewed in The New England Quarterly, The Journal of Military History and The American Historical Review.
