Excerpt from Alexander Hamilton

There are already a number of good biographies of Alexander Hamilton of different sizes and planned for various uses. The political history of the first three administrations has also been carefully studied and well described from various points of view.

I have not, therefore, written a biography, nor a history of the times of Hamilton.

The notion suggested by the title of this series, when taken in its most positive and concrete form, defines my task. I have undertaken to show how and in what sense Alexander Hamilton was one of the makers of this American State, I have constructed my book with just that and nothing else in view.

On page 13 my view of the subject is stated in a proposition, or thesis.

I have spent especial care and pains on an exposition (Chapters II. to VII.), as full and circumstantial as space would permit, of the defects and faults of American public life between 1765 and 1780.
