«This fascinating study captures the essence of republican constitutional order and of George Washington’s crucial role in its founding. It is at once brilliant and profound.» (Forrest McDonald, University of Alabama; Author of ‘States Rights and the Union’ and ‘Novus ordo seclorum: The Intellectual Origins of the Constitution’)
«W. B. Allen makes a point so simple, it seems revolutionary: George Washington knew what he was doing; he said so many times in his career; and if we listen and think, we can hear it today.» (Richard Brookhiser, Senior Editor, ‘National Review’; Author of ‘What Would the Founders Do? Our Questions, Their Answers’, and others)
