In an action-packed drama of colonial America, Unger reveals how the original Tea Party had less to do with tea than the political ambitions of James Otis Jr, a certifiably mad lawyer, and a bankrupt brewer named Sam Adams. These two took over the Boston merchants' protest movement against British import duties, seized political power in Massachusetts, and set off a social, political and economic storm that ended with the Declaration of Independence.
