“This book . . . achiev[es] a badly needed analysis of Hamilton’s impact on his and later times.”
“Scholars whose interests include the political, diplomatic, and economics aspects of the early republic will find these works rewarding additions to their reading.”
-Journal of the Early Republic
“Here are many fresh thoughts by many of the most innovative scholars at work on Alexander Hamilton today. Every student of the new republic and many general readers who are captivated by the subject will want to read this volume.”
-Lance Banning,author of Conceived in Liberty: The Struggle to Define the New Republic, 1789-1793
“Talleyrand, who was acquainted with all of the statesmen of Europe, once remarked that he had never encountered anyone ‘equal to Alexander Hamilton.’ Hamilton may, in fact, have been the greatest of the American Founding Fathers. He was certainly one of the most important. Despite this, he has rarely been given his due. This superb collection of essays goes a considerable distance towards redressing the balance and towards restoring an American statesman to the central place that he occupied in his own time.”
-Paul A. Rahe,author of Republics Ancient and Modern: Classical Republicanism and the American Revolution

They were an ideal tag team. They brought the best out of the other. I doubt that we will ever be able to know how much better off we are because of what they were and how their combined efforts yielded the best compromises of their times.
An eye opening read.
