About the Author

Alexander Hamilton (1757-1804) was a Founding Father, soldier, economist, political philosopher, one of America's first constitutional lawyers, and the first United States Secretary of the Treasury. After serving in the Revolutionary War, he was elected to the Continental Congress, ultimately resigning to establish the Bank of New York. Hamilton was a main contributor to the influential Federalist Papers, a collection of essays written by himself, John Jay, and James Madison. He was mortally wounded in a famous duel with presidential candidate Aaron Burr.

'Alexander Hamilton contributed to the framing of the US Constitution, its financial system, and its first political party. ... [T]his set is a nice and well-organized collection ... [which] will prove to be of great interest to political junkies or those who, having seen the hit Broadway show, have become fans of Hamilton.' R. J. Powell, Choice
