Summary This study examines the governance of British America prior to the American Revolution. Examining the career of George Montagu Dunk, 2nd Earl of Halifax and First Lord of the Board of Trade and Plantations (1716-1771), it explores colonial planners and policymakers during the political hiatus between the age of Walpole and the age of imperial crisis. As metropolitan politicians vied for ministerial dominance, Halifax's board played a vital role in shaping British perceptions of its growing empire
