When London was Capital of America
When London was Capital of America

Julie Flavell gives Georgian London an American makeover, with the city positioned as the capital of the American colonies. At this time colonial Americans were becoming an accepted part of the London scene, but they were also provoking challenging questions about the contradictions between British liberty and an empire founded on slavery.


Julie Flavell is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. She is the author and editor of several scholarly and popular publications on the relationship between colonial America and Britain, including Britain and America Go to War.
