During the twenty years before the American Revolution, thirty-seven men acted as paid agent or lobbyists for the American colonies in England. The most famous among them were Benjamin Franklin, who represented four different colonies and served for seventeen years as agenet for Pennsylvania, and Edmund Burke, who accepted the position to further his own career. Yet the other thirty-five were also a colorful and heterogenous group. This detailed study, by a Pulitzer-prize-winning historian, of their activities and of the gradual breakdown of communications between the colonies and the mother country, until the link between the two become only "a rope of sand," is, in the words of the Richmond News Leader, "a new and invigorating approach to the American fight for independence."

"Soundly documented, well organized and highly readable."
- The New York Historical Society Quarterly

"A challenging book about an important historical institution."
- The Historian

"A substantial contribution to our understanding of Anglo-American history during the eighteenth century."
- The New England Quarterly

"Both in concept and execution, A Rope of Sand is impressive."
- The Journal of American History
