"This comprehensive biography depicts the fortunes of the Last Royal Govenor Of The Massachusetts Bay Colony up to the American Revolution. Hutchinson, a conservative in a time of radical upheaval, had to deal with problems of public disorder and ideological commitment. It is at the same time a dramatic account of the origins of the American Revolution during the late 1760s to the outbreak in 1775. It is shown from the viewpoint, not of the winners who became the Founding Fathers, but of the losers, the Loyalists. By portraying the ordeal of the last civilian royal governor of Massachusetts, Mr. Hosmer explains what the human reality was against which the victors struggled and in doing so makes the story of the Revolution fuller and more comprehensible. Extensive Appendix & Index makes further research easier."
