John Randolph (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by Henry Adams

John Randolph, known as John Randolph of Roanoke, represented Virginia in the House of Representatives and the Senate, and once famously stated, “I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality.” Ideal for history buffs, Henry Adams’s biography of this prominent politician examines Randolph’s tumultuous career and disdainfully covers his preference for Jeffersonian policies rather than the Federalist politics of Adams’s own ancestors.

About the Author

Henry Adams (1838-1918) was a journalist, historian, and the descendant of two U.S. presidents. His studies of democracy, which culminated in his magesterial nine-volume History of the United States of America During the Administrations of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison (1889-91), left him profoundly disillusioned with politics. His autobiography, The Education of Henry Adams (1918), is considered an American classic.
