I love Joseph Ellis anyway, but this is a very readable look at some of the major issues facing our founding fathers during the early republic. Ellis sets up the book by using failry well known events (the Burr/Hamilton duel, Washington's farewell address, the Dinner party where Jefferson, Madison, and Hamilton traded the location of the capitol on the Potomac for congressional support of Hamilton's financial plan, Jefferson and Adams' famous friendship, etc) to elaborate and explore major themes of slavery, the constitution, and most importantly hot to go about creating a new nation. I would recommend this to not only history students but anyone who wants a better look at the early years of our government and the people who shaped what the US became. It's funny too! Love it!
