Probably no American statesman displayed more constructive imagination than did Alexander Hamilton. Prodigal of ideas, bursting with plans for diversifying the economy, and obsessed by a determination to make the United States a powerful nation under a centralized government, he left an imprint upon this country that time has not effaced. Alexander Hamilton and the Growth of the New Nation is the premier biography of Alexander Hamilton written by one of the foremost scholars of early American history.

Hamilton's career was at times contradictory: born, in John Adams's words, the "bastard brat of a Scotch peddler," he rose to high social, political, and military position in the newly born country. He dreaded divisiveness, yet his strate­gies and actions aggravated political sectionalism. Miller weaves together the complex facets of Hamilton's life to make a vivid, absorbing biography.

About the Author:

John C. Miller (1907–1991) was Edgar E. Robinson Professor of U.S. History at Stanford University.

Review:

"This excellent book about Alexander Hamilton and his times . . . recounts the political, Constitutional, economic, and financial history of the United States from the American Revolution to that day in July 1804, when Hamilton was killed in the duel with Burr. The story of the rise of the new nation, of cementing of the Union, is admirably told. . . . vivid, readable history."

—Daniel J. Boorstein

"Miller possesses to an unusual degree the ability to clarify complex issues and events. His discussions of Hamilton's reports as Secretary of the Treasury are models of clarity. . . . [This book] avoids the cliches and stereotypes we have come to associate with one of the most controversial figures in American history."

—Harold C. Syrett

"This is Miller's best book, and also the best full-length biography in the Hamilton literature."

—Merrill D. Peterson, William and Mary Quarterly
