FOUNDING BROTHERS, which won a Pulitzer Prize for history, paints a lively and graceful group portrait of the "revolutionary generation," giving us the minds and personalities of the men who shaped the American experiment in democracy, the first attempt to create a republic since the time of Caesar Augustus. Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton, Madison, and the Adamses come alive here as they did not in your high school textbooks. It's a portrait, too, of the intellectual and political forces that shaped our great documents and our institutions (the best and the worst) and is of entirely contemporary, as well as historical, interest. Nelson Runger reads with attention and acumen, doing the text complete justice. B.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
