Overview

In this volume developed first as a lecture, Higginbotham (history, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) argues that the greatest contribution of the first president of the United States was his ability to forge the concept of a unified nation, both in ideology and in institutional fact. Nearly half of the volume is devoted to the presentation of speeches and writings of Washington that illustrate the arguments, including thoughts on establishing a military infrastructure, his first inaugural address, and his farewell address.
