Synopsis: Gordon S. Wood presents the final volume in his definitive three-volume edition of the writings of a great American Founder. A powerful polemicist, insightful political theorist, and tireless diplomat, John Adams (1735?1826) was a vital and controversial figure during the early years of the American republic. Once overshadowed by Washington and Jefferson, Adams has become the subject of renewed interest, with a best-selling biography and acclaimed television series reintroducing him to millions. Now, this final volume of a comprehensive three-volume edition makes his important writings from the early national period broadly available to general readers. Bringing together letters, diary excerpts, political essays, speeches, and presidential messages, Writings from the New Nation 1784?1826 illuminates Adams's service as a diplomat in the Netherlands and England; his eight years as vice president under Washington; and his tumultous single term as president. The first person to win a contested presidential election and then to be defeated for reelection, Adams faced bitter criticism from both Jeffersonian Republicans and Hamiltonian Federalists while striving to prevent an undeclared naval conflict with Revolutionary France from escalating into full-scale war. Selections from A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America (1787?88) and Discourses on Davila (1790?91) demonstrate his insights into the strengths and weaknesses of ancient and modern political systems, while letters to his wife and children illuminate the passionate and mercurial personality of one of our most fascinating Founders. This volume is published simultaneously with  Abigail Adams: Letters, the first comprehensive collection of the extraordinary correspondence of Adams's wife and key advisor.

About the Author: Gordon S. Wood, editor of The Library of America's three-volume John Adams edition, is Alva O. Way Professor of History Emeritus at Brown University. His books include the Pulitzer Prize?winning The Radicalism of the American Revolution, the Bancroft Prize?winning The Creation of the American Republic, 1776?1787, and Empire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic, 1789?1815, for the Oxford History of the United States. In 2011 Wood was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama.
