"Webster's remarkable political, diplomatic and legal careers were aided by his intellectual brilliance and personal magnetism. He contributed significantly to the concept of American nationality, to the idea of a perpetual Union, to perspectives on economic growth, to a modern legal system and to the rising importance of the United States in foreign relations" (ANB). This set of Webster's works includes his congressional speeches and public addresses, legal arguments, diplomatic and official papers and miscellaneous letters, as well as a biographical memoir by Edward Everett.
