From the dust wrapper: "The many-sided Franklin, whose varied activities have puzzled so many historians, had nevertheless a central purpose in life, and the unity of his career can be understood only from that point of view; he was before all and always a moral leader. The shrewdest politician of the eighteenth century, he had to face the dissatisfaction of the Pennsylvania mobs, the hatred of English Tories and officials, the spiteful suspicion of a majority in Congress; a perfect diplomat, he was at a time accused of being treacherous to his country and to France". Contents include: The Rearing of an XVIIIth Century Radical; The "Way to Wealth"; Dr. Franklin Builds an Empire; His Excellency, Doctor Franklin, the Patriarch; Bibliography; Index.
