Portable John Adams based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The Portable John Adams is a good selection of Adams's writings from age 20 to age 80+. The core of these writings argues for the essential role of a government of checks and balances as necessary protection for the rights of citizens. Along with formal writings, the volume contains a lifetime of lively correspondence that gives you insight into this remarkable Founding Father, perhaps second in importance only to George Washington.
