Description

Phyllis Lee Levin’s biography, The Remarkable Education of John Quincy Adams, tells the story of a patriot by birth whose destiny was foreordained.

J. Q. Adams was not only “The Greatest Traveller of His Age” but also his country’s most gifted linguist and most experience diplomat. John Quincy’s world encompassed the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the Napoleonic Age.

Drawing closely on his voluminous writing, especially his journals and letters, this deeply researched biography offers a more sympathetic look at a man who has often been viewed as cold and stubbornly contentious.

Beautifully written, it is the definitive biography of the emotional and intellectual development of one of the most fascinating and towering early Americans.

As new; dust jacket.

Phyllis Lee Levin. The Remarkable Education of John Quincy Adams. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015. 1st edition, 524p., illustrations.
