Editorial Reviews

"Flexner's great achievement is that he has written a life that even the most rabid Jeffersonian can applaud. Admiring and critical at the same time, Flexner scrutinizes his subject's early years to arrive at a daring but convincing portrait. . . . Each generation requires its own biographies of history's major figures, but for the time being it is hard to see how Flexner's Hamilton could be improved."
