Full Description

A collection of forty brief essays accompanied by carefully selected excerpts from John Adams' and Thomas Jefferson's letters, diaries, and other writings, John Kaminski's Adams and Jefferson chronicles the hopes and fears of two of America's leading Founders. All the pressing domestic and foreign concerns of the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century receive a hearing in this handsome hardcover volume. Adams and Jefferson weigh in on matters as relevant today as then: American exceptionalism, public debt and taxation, immigration, diplomacy and defense, federal-state relations, the role of the judiciary, and political incivility and the party system. A perfect sourcebook for students of early American history and an ideal classroom resource for social studies, history, and civics teachers.
