Review:
"Ellis has written an entertaining account....Readers will find Ellis's conversational tone congenial."

Jon Meacham, New York Times Book Review, 11/11/2007

Review:
"To put it flatly: AMERICAN CREATION is on of the most enjoyable and thought-provoking books I've read in many years....What lifts Ellis above other historians of the era is his breathtaking mastery of suspense. This gift is all the more remarkable because the suspense is built almost entirely from the intrigue of ideas rather than the visceral emotions of flesh and blood adventures."

Debby Applegate, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.), 11/25/2007

Book Description: New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2007, First Edition, First Printing, SIGNED., 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. FLYER OF SIGNING EVENT INCLUDED. From JOSEPH ELLIS, the prizewinning author of the best-selling Founding Brothers and American Sphinx, a masterly and highly ironic examination of the founding years of our country. The last quarter of the eighteenth century remains the most politically creative era in American history, when a dedicated and determined group of men undertook a bold experiment in political ideals. It was a time of triumphs; yet, as Joseph J. Ellis makes clear, it was also a time of tragedies—all of which contributed to the shaping of our burgeoning nation. From the first shots fired at Lexington to the signing of the Declaration of Independence to the negotiations for the Louisiana Purchase, Ellis guides us through the decisive issues of the nation’s founding, and illuminates the emerging philosophies, shifting alliances, and personal and political foibles of our now iconic leaders—Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, and Adams. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 9698
