From the Publisher:
Ernest Samuel's Pulitzer prize-winning, multivolume work on Henry Adams is now a compact, updated, one-volume biography.
Annotation:
Ernest Samuels won a Pulitzer Prize for this single-volume abridgement of his three-volume life of Henry Adams. Samuels is a respected Adams scholar, known for editing his letters, and he places his subject in historical and literary context, while pointing out the discrepancies between Adams's life and its portrayal in his own THE EDUCATION OF HENRY ADAMS.

Praise

(unknown)
"The revision and abridgment of the three volumes have been performed with uncanny skill. What results is one of the most powerful literary-intellectual biographies ever done of an American." - R.W.B. Lewis

Chicago Tribune
"This welcome distillation reaffirms the enduring reputation of the original work and should earn for Samuels a new generation of admirers....And the book is a pleasure to read. 'Take your own life,' Adams once advised, 'in order to prevent biographers from taking it in theirs.' But even at his most crotchety...Henry Adams himself might not have been able to resist this enthralling book." - Harold Holzer

New York Times Book Review
"It is a complete success...a remarkable feat of the biographer's art." - Hugh Brogan
