Description:New. In Henry Adams and the Making of America, Pulitzer Prize...New. In Henry Adams and the Making of America, Pulitzer Prize winner Garry Wills makes a compelling argument for a reassessment of Henry Adams as our nation's greatest historian and his History as the nonfiction prose masterpiece of the nineteenth century in America. Adams drew on his own southern fixation, his extensive foreign travel, his political service in the Lincoln administration, and much more to invent the study of history as we know it. His nine-volume chronicle of America from 1800 to 1816 established new standards for employing archival sources, firsthand reportage, eyewitness accounts, and other techniques that have become the essence of modern history.

A terrific entrée to Henry Adams' 9 volume history of the US during the administrations of Jefferson and Madison 1800-1817. The first half of the book shows the development of Adams as an historian, while the second half summarizes the History volume by volume with ample quotes to illustrate Adams' style. While most readers are familiar with the Education of Henry Adams, few have taken on the onerous challenge of the History, perhaps because of its size, perhaps out of fear that it will be a ponderous tome. Wills book offers the opportunity to meet Adams, the man, and to sample his "prose masterpiece," described by Wills as "the best writing he ever did." After reading this teaser you just may find yourself eager to tackle the original. I did!
