Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for George Washington
“Stewart has written an outstanding biography that both avoids hagiography and acknowledges the greatness of Washington’s character, all while playing close attention to his rarely voiced but no less fierce political ambitions. . . . Mr. Stewart’s writing is clear, often superlative, his judgments are nuanced, and the whole has a narrative drive such a life deserves.”The Wall Street Journal

“David O. Stewart brings his characteristic grace and skill to this portrait of the political George Washington, liberating the most elusive of our Founders from the mists of myth to discover a shrewd and approachable human being. At a time when politics seems beyond redemption, Stewart's book is a welcome reminder of the possibilities, however imperfect, of the public arena.”—Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of His Truth Is Marching On

“By focusing on the political genius of George Washington, David O. Stewart has produced an important new portrait of our first president. As Stewart demonstrates time and time again, with vivid prose and a wonderful sense of pacing, great leaders are also great learners. In this time of division and turmoil, this is the book we need.”—Nathaniel Philbrick, National Book Award–winning author of In the Hurricane’s Eye: The Genius of George Washington and the Victory at Yorktown

“David O. Stewart’s innovative and important study of George Washington’s political career succeeds because it places his successes as president of the United States within the context of his whole life and times. The most fascinating thing about Washington is not how he was great, but how he became great over the course of a dramatic career, compellingly chronicled in this book.”—Edward G. Lengel, author of General George Washington: A Military Life

“In this lively and admirable study, Stewart offers a balanced and thoughtfully well-written appreciation of George Washington’s life and leadership. A must for fans of biographies.”Library Journal (starred review)

“Engaging . . . Devotees of the Founding Fathers will not want to miss the volume about the master politician, and American history buffs will be amazed by Stewart’s ability to hold your attention in this lengthy tome.”—The Virginia Gazette
 
“Examines in detail and with excellent analysis how Washington developed the political skills that would serve him in both war and peace. . . . A truly fresh look at one of the most chronicled figures in American history.”—New York Journal of Books
 
“Under Stewart's energetic hand, the cold-marble hero warms into a flawed yet remarkable person: ambitious, evenhanded, tender, callous, impetuous in his youth, wiser with age.”Washington Independent Review of Books
 
“One of the most insightful books about George Washington. [Stewart's] explanation of Washington as a masterful politician is important and convincing.”—The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography
 
“Stewart addresses the political aptitude of the Father of the Nation . . .[in this] readable and revealing contemporary look at Washington.”—Booklist (starred review)
