Middleton Awarded BAAS Prize

From Privileges to RightsThe British Association for American Studies has awarded its Book Prize for the best published book in American Studies in 2006 to Simon Middleton’s From Privileges to Rights: Work and Politics in Colonial New York City.

From Privileges to Rights connects the changing fortunes of tradesmen in early New York to the emergence of a conception of subjective rights that accompanied the transition to a republican and liberal order in eighteenth-century America.
