Présentation de l'éditeur :

A huge bestseller in America, David McCullough's JOHN ADAMS tells the extraordinary story of the brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot -- 'the colossus of independence', as Thomas Jefferson called him -- who spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution and who rose to become the second President of the United States.
Both a riveting portrait of an abundantly human man and a vivid evocation of his time, JOHN ADAMS has the sweep and vitality of a great novel, taking us from the Boston Massacre to Philadelphia in 1776 to the Versailles of Louis XVI, from Spain to Amsterdam to London, where Adams was the first American to stand before King George III as a representative of the new nation.
This is history on a grand scale -- a book about politics and war, but also about human nature, love, faith, virtue, ambition, friendship and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, it is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.

Description du livre Simon & Schuster, New York, London, Toronto, Sydney & Singapore, 2001. Hardcover. État : New. Etat de la jaquette : New. 1st Edition. SUPERB: NEW 1st ed. hardcover 19th printing, new unclipped mylar-protected jacket showing orig. $35.00 price, new cover, immaculate text-block exterior, impeccable illus. sepia end-papers, new sewn binding w tight signatures, pristine interior handsomely printed on superb paper * 6.50" x 9.50" x 1.68", 1.18 kg, 751 pp. * In this powerful, epic biography, David McCullough unfolds the adventurous life-journey of John Adams, the brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot, "the colossus of independence" as Thomas Jefferson called him, who spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution; who rose to become the 2nd President of the United States & saved the country from blundering into an unnecessary war; who was learned beyond all but a few & regarded by some as "out of his senses"; & whose marriage to the wise & valiant Abigail Adams is one of the moving love stories in American history. Like his masterful Pulitzer Prize-winning biography "Truman", David McCullough's "John Adams" has the sweep & vitality of a great novel. It is both a riveting portrait of an abundantly human man & a vivid evocation of his time, much of it drawn from an outstanding collection of Adams family letters & diaries. In particular, the more than 1,000 surviving letters between John & Abigail Adams, nearly half of which have never been published, provide extraordinary access to their private lives & make it possible to know John Adams as no other major American of his founding era. As he has w/ stunning effect in his previous books, McCullough tells the story from within, from the point of view of the amazing 18th century & of those who, caught up in events, had no sure way of knowing how things would turn out. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, the British spy Edward Bancroft, Madame Lafayette & Jefferson's Paris "interest" Maria Cosway, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, scandal-monger James Callender, Sally Hemings, John Marshall, Talleyrand & Aaron Burr all figure in this panoramic chronicle, as does, importantly, John Quincy Adams, the adored son whom Adams would live to see become President. Crucial to the story, as it was to history, is the relationship between Adams & Jefferson, born opposites, one a Massachusetts farmer's son, the other a Virginia aristocrat & slaveholder, one short & stout, the other tall & spare. Adams embraced conflict; Jefferson avoided it. Adams had great humor; Jefferson, very little. But they were alike in their devotion to their country. At first ardent co-revolutionaries, then fellow diplomats & close friends, w/ the advent of the 2 political parties they became arch-rivals, even enemies, in the intense struggle for the presidency in 1800, perhaps the most vicious election in history. Then, amazingly, they became friends again, & ultimately, incredibly, they died on the same day (their day of days) July 4, in the year 1826. Much about John Adams' life will come as a surprise to many readers. His courageous voyage on the frigate "Boston" in the winter of 1778 & his later trek over the Pyrenees are exploits that few would have dared & that few readers will ever forget. It is a life encompassing a huge arc (Adams lived longer than any president). The story ranges from the Boston Massacre to Philadelphia in 1776 to the Versailles of Louis XVI, from Spain to Amsterdam, from the Court of St. James where Adams was the first American to stand before King George III as a representative of the new nation, to the raw, half-finished Capital by the Potomac, where Adams was the first President to occupy the White House. This is history on a grand scale, a book about politics & war & social issues & also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship & betrayal, & the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, "John Adams" is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important & fascinating Americans who ever lived. N° de réf. du libraire 006481
