Jack P. Greene has most often made his mark with the essay (especially the historiographical review). Negotiated Authorities collects a number of these writings from the last thirty-five years on the political and constitutional history of colonial British America. A companion volume to Imperatives, Behaviors, and Identities: Essays in Early American Cultural History (Charlottesville, 1992), this book, like its partner, contains a selection of published (14) and unpublished (2), original (12) and historiographical (4) pieces.
