Editorial Reviews

Review

A comprehensive take on Hamilton that will stir discussion, not only of this Founding Father, but also of the nature and character of American democracy. Federici provides a convincing portrait of Hamilton's political thought as grounded in his philosophical anthropology and gives a more rounded―and democratic―view of Hamilton than currently exists.

(George Thomas, author of The Madisonian Constitution)

[A] comprehensive and very thoughtful work that should go a long way toward restoring Hamilton to his rightful place among our Founding Fathers.

(George W. Carey American Conservative)

Federici deepens readers' understanding of Hamilton's political thought and his enduring legacy.

(Choice)

This book is an intelligent investigation that ultimately reminds us that the ideas of the founders remain as relevant in 2012 as they were in the 1790s.

(John G. McCurdy H-Law)

This is a rich and developed book... Hamilton's political thinking does indeed deserve greater attention today, and Federici provides a valuable contribution toward that understanding.

(Troy E. Smith Review of Politics)

About the Author

Michael P. Federici is a professor of political science at Mercyhurst University and the author of Eric Voegelin: The Restoration of Order and The Challenge of Populism: The Rise of Right-Wing Democratism in Postwar America.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Federici presents one of the most balanced and realistic views of Hamilton's political theory. Even though Hamilton's politics are extremely complex and frequently a little convoluted Federici does a fantastic job of walking the reader through his conclusions while disclosing evidence for opposing theories, including the idea that Hamilton was a Machiavellian.
