Description - John Quincy Adams by Paul C. Nagel

John Quincy Adams was raised, educated, and groomed to be President of the USA, following in the footsteps of his father, John. At 14 he was secretary to the Minister of Russia and, later, was himself Minister to the Netherlands and Prussia. He was US Senator, Secretary of State, and then President for one ill-fated term. His private life showed a parallel descent. He was a poet, writer, critic, and Professor of Oratory at Harvard. He married a talented and engaging Southerner, but two of his three sons were disappointments. This is a biography of the man.
