    It's Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism af Thomas E. Mann (themulhern)
    themulhern: Compare and contrast the party politics of the late 1700s and early 1800s with the party politics of today. Is it really that much worse today? Josep Ellis says that it is, but his "The Founding Brothers" describes some very cynical party maneuvers and some deep philosophical divides. Maybe those founding brothers did it with a bit more grace, and that's the only difference.… (mere)

    Burr af Gore Vidal (themulhern)
    themulhern: This is a fictional account of Aaron Burr's career told mostly via his fictionalized reminiscences. He also appears, now a very old man, with a legal practice in New York. Vidal's take on the founding brothers seemed deeply caustic to me when I read this book many years ago. The same events crop up in both books, since Aaron Burr was an officer in the Revolutionary Army and then a prominent politician through the early 1800s.… (mere)

What a small book to win a grand prize!

Still, with a lot of repetition, it could have been at least a quarter shorter.

Neither "Near nor farsighted," American Revolutionaries never considered that the land they claimed
as "peculiarly designed by Providence" was already occupied by many great and happy human beings.

This set the stage for their subsequent refusal to treat slaves as human beings.

Joseph Ellis strangely leads off his book with a totally depressing "The Duel."
Why he did not wait to gradually lead readers to this horror is never explained.
Nor is why the fervent anti-duelists did not unite to prevent it.

"The Dinner" offers little more than repetitive and tedious intricacies.
"The Silence" is another over-one drawn out account.
"The Farewell" = hmmmmm. ( )

Fascinating vignettes from important moments in the Founding generation. This isn't so much a chronological overview of the Revolutionary year as a meditations on particular poignant moments and events in those early years. A positive in the book is the historical background given on certain decisions and situations. The intended readership is a general audience; overall I enjoyed this book and would recommended it to others. ( )

I had to read this in university for a history course. It was an impressive book that made it clear the ideas and challenges facing the men that helped to create the U.S. ( )

An excellent, illuminating read delving into the lives, personalities, idiosyncrasies and deep abiding links between the revolutionary generation's founding brothers, especially the long-time friendship between Jefferson and Adams. "Founding Brothers" should be on every serious scholar's reference shelf. Beautifully written. ( )

This book consisted of several longish essays on significant events. I enjoyed it, but not as much as his other books which went into more detail about their subjects. ( )
