John Adams (American Presidents (Transaction Paperback)) Paperback – March 7, 2009
Special Offers and Product Promotions
"John Adams is more than a simple biography of the American Founding Father, philosopher of the Revolution, and second President of the United States. Highly recommended, especially for political science and philosophy shelves."
– Wisconsin Bookwatch
“Burleigh gives us a warm, sensitive study of John Adams in the many roles he played during his eventful life: student, lawyer, polemicist, founding father, diplomat, president, husband and father. His own brilliance and the events of the times in which he lived combined to offer him the knowledge and fame he sought. Burleigh’s new introduction explains our continuing interest in this central figure of the early years of the American Republic.”
– DePauw Magazine
