Ron Chernow, the renowned author of "Titan" whom the "New York Times" has called ?as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we?ve seen in decades, ? vividly re-creates the whole sweep of Alexander Hamilton's turbulent life?his exotic, brutal upbringing; his titanic feuds with celebrated rivals; his pivotal role in defining the shape of the federal government and the American economy; his shocking illicit romances; his enlightened abolitionism; and his famous death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July 1804. Drawing upon extensive, unparalleled research? including nearly fifty previously undiscovered essays highlighting Hamilton's fiery journalism as well as his revealing missives to colleagues and friends?this biography of the extraordinarily gifted founding father who galvanized, inspired, and scandalized the newborn nation is the work by which all others will be measured.
