Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jon Kukla restores Patrick Henry to the front rank of American Revolutionary patriots.  Patrick Henry: Champion of Liberty is a magnificent achievement, the best biography by far of the great orator and statesman who played such a crucial role in shaping the course of Revolutionary Virginia's history.  Kukla's Patrick Henry will not be surpassed.” (Peter S. Onuf, Thomas Jefferson Professor of History, Emeritus, University of Virginia; and coauthor, with Annette Gordon-Reed, of “Most Blessed of the Patriarchs”: Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the Imagination )

“Before the Declaration of Independence, before Lexington and Concord, Patrick Henry spoke treason to power and chose liberty over death. Jon Kukla tells the story of the first founding father, a passionate populist, devout Christian and first-class legal mind.” (Richard Brookhiser, author of Founders' Son: A Life of Abraham Lincoln )

"A brilliant orator, a firebrand for freedom and individual rights, Henry stands as an American luminary, and Kukla’s magisterial biography shines the glow of achievement on subject and author alike." (Jay Strafford Richmond Times Dispatch)

“Kukla has written a compelling biography that serves his subject well. . . . A detailed, lively, probably definitive biography of a revolutionary figure who merits more recognition.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Patrick Henry provided much of the fire that lit the American Revolution in 1775 and 1776, and remained true to his democratic principles through a life of service to his country.  In this wise and learned biography, Jon Kukla gives us the authoritative account of this essential figure in the creation of America.” (David O. Stewart, author of Madison’s Gift and The Summer of 1787 )

"An informational and enlightening biography of the great agitator for democracy." (Library Journal)
