Description: This ambitious work restores Aaron Burr to his place as a central figure in the founding of the American Republic. Abolitionist, protofeminist, friend to such Indian leaders as Joseph Brant, Burr was personally acquainted with a wider range of Americans, and more of the American continent, than any other Founder except George Washington.

Written from the perspective of an historian and administrator who, over nearly fifty years in public life, has served six presidents, this book penetrates into the personal qualities of its three central figures. In telling the tale of their shifting power relationships and their antipathies, it reassesses their policies and the consequences of their successes and failures. Fresh information about the careers of Hamilton and Burr is derived from newly-discovered sources, and a supporting cast of secondary figures emerges to give depth and irony to the principal narrative. This is a book for people who know how political life is lived, and who refuse to be confined within preconceptions and prejudices until they have weighed all the evidence, to reach their own conclusions both as to events and to character.

Although a controversial book, it is not a confrontational one, for it is written with sympathy for men of high aspirations, who were disappointed in much but who succeeded, in all three cases, to a degree not hitherto fully understood.
