"...presents a brief, readable synopsis of the Federalist period....The book is well grounded in primary and secondary sources."—Review, Choice, January 2013
Stephen F. Knott

“William Nester’s The Hamiltonian Vision, 1789–1800 offers a comprehensive overview of the most critical period in American history, examining the key events of the era while focusing on the titanic struggle between Hamilton and Jefferson for the soul of America. Nester rightly acknowledges the triumph of Hamilton’s vision, for while Hamilton’s personal power diminished rapidly during this period, his dreams for the new nation prevailed, launching the United States on the path to superpower status.”—Stephen F. Knott, author of Alexander Hamilton and the Persistence of Myth
