"This book explains Hamilton's radical ideas in the context of his revolutionary times and in contrast to other revolutionaries, such as Thomas Jefferson, who emerges as the epitome of rural, slave-owning, anti-statist thinkers. This is a book of scholarship, with hundreds of notes and explanations of early American economics and history, but written in a stylish, accessible, narrative style befitting a leading, longtime journalist"-- Provided by publisher.
