Beschreibung

Chosen as a Notable Book of the Year by the New York Times Book Review and as a best book for 2002 by the Los Angeles Times Book Review, Washington Post Book World, and Publishers Weekly. A finalist for the 2003 National Book Critics Circle Award in biography. The greatest statesman of his age, Benjamin Franklin was also a pioneering scientist, a successful author, the first American postmaster general, a printer, a bon vivant. In addition, he was a man of vast contradictions. This bestselling biography by one of our greatest historians offers a compact and provocative new portrait of America's most extraordinary patriot.

Portrait

Edmund S. Morgan, Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University, has written more than a dozen books. Cited as "one of America's most distinguished historians", he was awarded the National Humanities Medal in 2000.

Pressestimmen

"While several previous biographies provide fuller accounts of Franklin's life, none rivals Morgan's study for its grasp of Franklin's character, its affinity not just for his ideas, but for the way his mind worked." Joseph J. Ellis, London Review of Books "Superb... The best short biography of Franklin ever written. A concise and beautifully written portrait of an American hero." Gordon Wood, New York Review of Books "Entrancing... lucid and entertaining." Charles M. Carberry, USA Today "In this engaging and readable book, Edmund Morgan does more than recount the colourful and gripping story of Franklin's long, action- and idea-filled life; he also skillfully dissects the man's personality and mind, his social self and political beliefs." Susan Dunn, New York Times Book Review "A luminous biography." Louis P. Masur, Chicago Tribune Book Review "It is difficult, perhaps impossible, to find fault with this book." Carol Berkin, New England Quartely
