To Begin the World Anew by Bernard Bailyn
Book DescriptionTwo time Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Bernard Bailyn has distilled a lifetime of study into this brilliant illumination of the ideas and world of the Founding Fathers. In five succinct essays he reveals the origins, depth, and global impact of their extraordinary creativity. The opening essay illuminates the central importance of America s provincialism to the formation of a truly original political system. In the chapters following, he explores the ambiguities and achievements of Jefferson s career, Benjamin Franklin s changing image and supple diplomacy, the circumstances and impact of the Federalist Papers , and the continuing influence of American constitutional thought throughout the Atlantic world. To Begin the World Anew enlivens our appreciation of how America came to be and deepens our understanding of the men who created it."
