Description
 
Using visual documentation -- portraits, architect., & allegorical engravings -- as well as written sources, Bailyn paints a complex picture of the distant but still remarkably relevant world of the founding generation. With character sketches of key figures of the Amer. Revol., he reveals their ambiguities, complexities, & uncertainties as well as their achievements: Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, & John Jay. Bailyn concludes with an effort to locate the effect of the Foundersí imaginative thought on political reformers throughout the Atlantic world. Precisely how their principles were received abroad is as ambiguous as the personalities of the remarkably creative provincials who founded the nation. Illustrations.
