Deserving of every accolade…”John Adams” is an extraordinarily crafted account of the key mind behind our country’s founding. While Washington and Jefferson served as key inspirational figures, the true intellect has always been considered by scholars to be shared by Madison and Adams.
In this book, you can see in Adams’ mind the perfect balance between the advantages and dangers of a strong Federal Government. Although officially a Federalist, Adams understood the risks of too much government power far away from the governed, and also had a firm grasp on the role of Religion and Faith in political discourse.
“John Adams” is not only informative, but undeniably readable, an important and exceptional quality for a historical biography.
