The Debate on the Constitution charts the course of the bloodless revolution that created the government of the United States and the world's oldest working national charter. In the elventh-month struggle over ratification, Federalist supporters, Antifederalist opponents, and seekers of a middle ground closely examined and brilliantly debated the document that was to shape the country's future. Their extraordinary energy and eloquence is captured here first hand in a unique collection of speeches, newspaper articles, pamphlets, and private letters.

Ron Chernow tells the riveting story of Alexander Hamilton in the first full-length biography in decades as a man who overcame all odds to shape, inspire, and scandalize the newborn America. Chernow presents an entirely different man than the commonly perceived aristocrat, whose legendary ambitions were motivated not merely by self-interest but by passionate patriotism and a stubborn will to build the foundations of American prosperity and power. This Hamilton is far more human than we've encountered before-from his shame about his birth to his fiery aspirations, from his intimate relationships with childhood friends to his titanic feuds with Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Monroe, and Burr, and from his highly public affair with Maria Reynolds to his loving marriage to his loyal wife Eliza. Never before has there been a more vivid account of Hamilton's famous and mysterious death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July of 1804.

Alexander Hamilton is one of the least understood, most important, and most impassioned and inspiring of the founding fathers. At last Hamilton has found a modern biographer who can bring him to fullblooded life: In these pages, Alexander Hamilton sheds his skewed image as the "bastard brat of a Scotch peddler," sex scandal survivor, and notoriously doomed dueling partner of Aaron Burr. Examined up close, throughout his meteoric and ever-fascinating (if tragically brief) life, Hamilton can at last be seen as one of the most crucial of the founders. Here, thanks to Brookhiser's accustomed wit and grace, this quintessential American lives again.
