Description
 
James Tagg (au).
The first modern biography of Benjamin Franklin Bache, the grandson of Benjamin Franklin. Between 1793 & 1798, Bache was the nation’s leading political journalist & a sharp critic of the Federalists. As editor of the “Aurora,” the most important radical newspaper of the 1790s, he lived at the center of most of the political storms of that decade. A primary target of the Sedition Act, Bache was indicted for federal common law seditious libel before that act took effect. Tagg establishes the ideological & psychological framework of Bache’s later radicalism by carefully examining Bache’s childhood with his grandfather, his education in Geneva, & his adolescence in Philadelphia.
