The Founders' Almanac is an easy-to-use guide to the origins of American democracy — focusing on information that is especially valuable for our day. The calendar describes important events of the era. Biographical essays introduce the leading Founders — including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams — and discuss the major themes of their statesmanship. An extensive compilation of quotations reflects the wit and wisdom of the Founding generation, and an annotated bibliography suggests additional readings. Historical documents — the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution and Washington's Farewell Address — and interpretative essays reacquaint the reader with immortal words and their contemporary meaning.

Review:

"'The Founders' Almanac' should be required reading for students of all ages to help them understand what the Founders thought and believed and how their ideas shaped America's virtues, principles, and character." -- William J. Bennett, author of "The Book of Virtues."

"The Founding Fathers had Plutarch, their guide to the thoughts and deeds of the great men of the ancient world. Now we have 'The Founders' Almanac,' a handy precis of essential lives and trenchant thoughts." --Richard Brookhiser, author of "Founding Father: Rediscovering George Washington."
