Product Details
By John P. Kaminski

Born in 1755 on a small Caribbean island to unmarried parents, Alexander Hamilton did not enjoy the privileges of wealth or heredity by which so many of his contemporaries advanced to the highest levels of power. Yet Hamilton's natural ability and ambition earned him prevailing influence in the American Revolution and the government created thereafter, eventually securing his place in the pantheon of America's founders.


John P. Kaminski is the founder and director of The Center for the Study of the American Constitution in the History Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is director and co-editor of The Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution of which twenty-seven volumes have been published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. A leading scholar on Constitutional history, Kaminski has also published another twenty-six volumes on a variety of topics in the American Founding Era.
