Product Details
By John P. Kaminski

Discover the real man behind the popular new musical about him, Alexander Hamilton, in this remarkable collection of quotations by, and about, the Founding American. Through his own words and the sometimes-cutting words of his contemporaries, friends and enemies (including Aaron Burr, the man who killed him in a duel), editor John P. Kaminski paints a nuanced word portrait of a complex man. This book provides a better, true understanding of this fascinating man who rose from anonymity on a small Caribbean island to the corridors of power.

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.
