Joseph J. Ellis brings the exacting scholarship, shrewd analysis, and lyric prose to this landmark biography of our first president, that have made him one of the premier historians of the Revolutionary era. Training his lens on a figure who sometimes seems as remote as his effigy on Mount Rushmore, Ellis assesses George Washington as a military and political leader and a man whose “statue-like solidity” concealed volcanic energies and emotions.
