#UM2582 $35.00 Members' Price: $29.75

A decade after historian Darren Staloff called him the "least loved founding father," Alexander Hamilton's legacy has enjoyed a surge in popular interest, largely due to the wildly successful Broadway musical about his life. For those who can't get enough of the revolutionary statesman - and for anyone who enjoys American history and/or fascinating life stories - this lively and generously illustrated biography will garner rave reviews! Richard Sylla, Hamilton scholar and chairman of the Museum of American Finance, illuminates the personal challenges, professional milestones, and lasting historic contributions of the student/soldier/lawyer/finance minister/politician - from his tumultuous childhood in the West Indies to his dramatic death at the hands of Vice President Aaron Burr. Reproductions of period artwork, newspaper clippings, political cartoons, and relevant documents enrich the informative text and, as an added bonus, the back of the dust jacket is printed with a frameable antique map of New York! It's a fitting tribute to the complex genius credited with modernizing the nation. (AG)
