"Some of Stoll's best passages come when he matches the events to Adams's surviving newspaper writing, revealing the canny journalist behind the icon. Sam Adams failed as a tax man but found his vocation denouncing them. To watch Adams come into his own is to see the beginnings of American journalism and politics."
"Stoll effectively conveys both the virtues and defects of a somewhat neglected but very essential figure in our Revolutionary struggle."
"This account might sustain a renewed interest in Adams as the founder of a distinctly American spirit."
From the Publisher
Annotation While rarely listed in the group we remember as the Founding Fathers, Sam Adams nevertheless contributed greatly to the revolutionary cause through his stirring writings, and he is one of the more fiery and interesting figures from the period. Biographer Ira Stoll provides as thorough as possible account of Adams's life and career, as he draws on surviving private paper as well as published journalism. Stoll places significance on Adams's religious world view as a primary catalyst to his words and actions.
