Editorial Reviews

About the Author

John Patrick Diggins is Distinguished Professor of History at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He is the author of numerous books, including On Hallowed Ground, The Proud Decades, The Lost Soul of American Politics, The Rise and Fall of the American Left, and Max Weber: Politics and the Spirit of Tragedy. He lives in New York City.

From AudioFile

Our second president has captured the interest of many in the past several years due primarily to distinguished historian David McCullough's masterful biography, also titled JOHN ADAMS (2001). Diggins's smaller work, an entry in The American Presidents series, under the editorship of Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., is short on biography and long on political philosophy. Adams was a tireless writer, and Diggins sees his politics as studied, coherent, and consistent, unlike those of Thomas Jefferson, a leader whom Diggins strongly criticizes. Richard Rohan has the thankless task of bringing to life a dry narrative in which personality is scarcely featured. He contents himself with a straightforward reading.
