From jacket: The reader of this book will be listening in on debates between John Adams and some of the most famous eighteenth-century writers--Bolingbroke, Rousseau, DeMably, Turgot, Condorcet, Mary Wollstonecraft, and many others. For as he read their books, Adams engaged in argument with them, writing his impassioned comments on the margins. His notes follow one another so closely that real dialogues ensue between him and the various authors. Mr. Haraszti reproduces the larger part of these dialogues, giving brief excerpts from the texts accompanied by Adams' comments. Introductory essays on Adams and his political philosophy are followed by chapters devoted to the individual authors, each preceded by Mr. Haraszti's penetrating discussions of their works...More than a hundred books in Adams's library of three thousand volumes contain marginal notes, often several thousand words each. They add up to the first critque of the doctrine of progress by an American.
