"This excellent book about Alexander Hamilton and his times... recounts the political, Constitutional, economic, and financial history of the United States from the American Revolution to that day in July 1804, when Hamilton was killed in the duel with Burr. The story of the rise of the new nation, of cementing of the Union, is admirably told....vivid, readable history."
—Daniel J. Boorstein
"Miller possesses to an unusual degree the ability to clarify complex issues and events. His discussions of Hamilton's reports as Secretary of the Treasury are models of clarity.... [This book] avoids the cliches and stereotypes we have come to associate with one of the most controversial figures in American history."
—Harold C. Syrett
"This is Miller's best book, and also the best full-length biography in the Hamilton literature."
—Merrill D. Peterson, William and Mary Quarterly
