From the Publisher?David Waldstreicher has compiled a glittering collection of essays surveying the lives and times of the second and sixth presidents of the United States. The public and private lives of John, John Quincy and the inimitable Abigail Adams continue to fascinate both academe and the reading public. The distinguished collection of authors who contribute to this volume deal with everything from diplomacy and politics to religion, science and literature. This is a must read for anyone hoping to keep up with the Adamses.? - Randall B. Woods, author of the forthcoming John Quincy Adams: "A Man for the Whole People"
?This splendid collection offers something wonderful for every scholar and casual reader who values the Adamses, from brief life and literature surveys of John, Abigail, John Quincy, and Louisa Catherine to essays on both presidencies, four presidential elections, and contested issues of politics, diplomacy, and culture from the American Revolution to the slavery crisis.? - Richard Alan Ryerson, Former Editor in Chief of The Adams Papers
