A revealing perspective on the men who invented America. Spanning the most crucial decades of the country''s birth, from 1772 to 1792, Rakove uses the stories of famous (and not-so-famous) men to capture the intensely creative period of the Republic''s founding.
Annotation:
Historian Jack Rakove takes a fresh view of the exalted founding fathers, seeing Washington, Jefferson, Adams as, first, men of accomplishment--solid citizens who were drawn into the storm of rebellion, and whose skills were up to the task. Rakove provides portraits of lesser-knowns as well a the usual suspects who populate these accounts.
