About this item

A special edition celebrating the New-York Historical Society's exhiition Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America.

Alexander Hamilton is one of the least understood, most important, and most impassioned and inspiring of the founding fathers. At last Hamilton has found a modern biogragher who can bring him to fullblooded life: Richard Brookhiser. In these pages, Alexander Hamilton sheds his skewed image as the "bastard brat of Scottish peddler," sex scandal survivor, and notoriously doomed dueling partner of Aaron Burr. Examoned up close, throughout his meteoric and ever-fascinating (if tragically brief) life, Hamilton can at last be seen as one of the most crucial of the founders. Here, thanks to Brookhiser's accustomed wit and grace, this quintessential American lives again.
