In this elegant collection, Donald R. Hickey and Connie D. Clark bring together enlightening, important, and amusing selections from Hamilton's speeches, published writings and personal letters. As we come to understand his thoughts on subjects as diverse as the Constitution, love, war, liberty and honor, we find that his words are often as applicable in our own time as they were in his.
Donald R. Hickey is professor of history at Wayne State College in Nebraska and the author of the award-winning book, The War of 1812: A Forgotten Conflict. Connie D. Clark is a freelance editor and consultant.
