What People are Saying About This

Henry Steele Commager

[This] is a correspondence that covers all topics; that embraces most of two lifetimes; that never fails of learning, wit, grace, and charm; and that reveals both of these statesmen and philosophers at their most felicitous.
— Henry Steele Commager

From the Publisher

American history offers no parallel to the friendship between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, spanning the first half century of the Republic. . . . The publication, in full and integrated form, of the remarkable correspondence between these two eminent men is a notable event.—Dumas Malone, New York Times Book Review



A major treasure of national literature.—C. Vann Woodward, Key Reporter
