Description
 
Bruce Miroff (au). A profound & disturbing examination of the dangers & possibilities of democratic leadership, this book traces a fundamental tension between leadership & popular democracy that has animated American life from the Revolution through the turbulent 1960s. Examines 9 emblematic political giants -- Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Theodore Roosevelt, Eugene Debs, Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy, & Martin Luther King, Jr. -- revealing differences in their passions for distinction, commitments to democratic education, & responses to class, racial, & sexual tensions.
