Synopsis:

Life of John Jay

He was one of the foremost Founding Fathers, first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and author of The Federalist Papers but have you or your children even heard of John Jay?

John Jay was one of the leading fighters for American independence and a leader in the establishment of our republic, yet today he has fallen into undeserved obscurity. William Jay, author and son of Jay hoped to stave off this fate: "It would be doing injustice to the American people to suppose, that they do not take an interest in knowing the characters and actions of those to whom they are indebted for the liberty and prosperity they enjoy."

Your studies of the American Revolution and the first years of Constitutional government will be tremendously enriched — for John Jay s life takes in a panorama of the dramatic and world-changing events of those tumultuous years. This volume gives you an insider's view of:

* Jay's strategic consultations with General George Washington about the direction of the Revolutionary War

* The organization of the Federal Government and Supreme Court — Jay's key role in each, and in every important detail of the molding of our political systems

* The noble political activities of Jay in collaboration with John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, and other Founders — refreshing reading in this age of sound-bites and shallow opportunism

Poll charts and focus groups in John Jay's office? Hardly: "Neither courting nor dreading the public opinion on the one hand, nor disregarding it on the other, I joined myself to the first assertors of the American cause, because I thought it my duty; and because I considered caution and neutrality, however secure, as being no less wrong than dishonourable."

ACLU, take note: the first Chief Justice was a fervent and strong-willed Christian.
