More About Agony and Eloquence by Daniel L. Mallock
 
 
 
Overview
The drama of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson is the foundational story of Americacourage, loyalty, hope, fanaticism, greatness, failure, forgiveness, love.
"Agony and Eloquence" is the story of the greatest friendship in American history and the revolutionary times in which it was made, ruined, and finally renewed.
In the wake of Washington s retirement, longtime friends Thomas Jefferson and John Adams came to represent the opposing political forces struggling to shape America s future. Adams s victory in the presidential election of 1796 brought Jefferson into his administrationbut as an unlikely and deeply conflicted vice president. The bloody Republican revolution in France finally brought their political differences to a bitter pitch. In Mallock s take on this fascinating period, French foreign policy and revolutionary developmentsfrom the fall of the Bastille to the fall of the Jacobins and the rise of Napoleonform a disturbing and illuminating counterpoint to events, controversies, individuals, and relationships in Philadelphia and Washington.
Many important and fascinating people appear in the book, including Thomas Paine, Camille Desmoulins, Dr. Benjamin Rush, Tobias Lear, Talleyrand, Robespierre, Danton, Saint-Just, Abigail Adams, Lafayette, James Madison, John Quincy Adams, Dr. Joseph Priestley, Samuel Adams, Philip Mazzei, John Marshall, Alexander Hamilton, and Edward Coles. They are brought to life by Mallock s insightful analysis and clear and lively writing.
"Agony and Eloquence" is a thoroughly researched and tautly written modern history. When the most important thing is at stake, "almost anything" can be justified.
