New York 2003 Hardcover First Edition. United States Presidents Series. 200 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. UNITED STATES PRESIDENTS. Perhaps no United States President was le ...show moress suited for the practice of politics than John Adams, A gifted philosopher who helped lead the movement for American independence from its inception, Adams was unprepared for the realties of party politics that had already begun to dominate the new country before Washington left office. Indeed, Adams and the Federalists were so effectively outmaneuved by the Republicans that hisory has tended to overlood the legacy of the short, balding man from Massachusetts who led the country between Washington and Jefferson. Includes an Index. (Key Words: John Adams, United States Presidents, John Patrick Diggins, XYZ Affair, George Washington, Slavery, Thomas Paine, Thomas Pinckney, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, France, England, United States Constitution, John Quincy Adams, Abigail Smith Adams). ...show less
