Description

John Adams (1735-1826) was a highly educated and enlightened lawyer who became a central figure in the American Revolution. As a political theorist he influenced the constitutions of the former British colonies in America, and he is regarded, with Jefferson, as the father of the United States Constitution. First published in 1850-6, this collection brings together Adams' major writings. Given their influence not only on the United States, but also on other republics, Adams' works rank among the most important political writings of their time. Volume 10 contains personal correspondence including the letters that brought about the resumption of friendship between Adams and Jefferson. It also reveals their rivalry: to a mutual friend, Adams wrote 'I dined a large company once or twice a week. Jefferson dined a dozen a day.'show more
