9780674368088: Nation Builder: John Quincy Adams and the Grand Strategy of the Republic
Críticas:

"Nation Builder: John Quincy Adams and the Grand Strategy of the Republic" is an intellectual biography rather than a full-dress life. Few presidents merit such treatment as much as Adams, who, through essays, speeches, letters and a diary kept meticulously over almost 70 years, left a remarkable record of a great mind at work on the prospects of the young, fragile nation For Adams, greatness without virtue like the greatness of Napoleon was monstrous. Principle was everything. I don t know that today s grand strategists would find Adams s exacting standards congenial. He was, as Edel demonstrates, a farseeing man. But he asked more of America than it is inclined to ask of itself.--James Traub"Wall Street Journal" (12/12/2014)"

Críticas:

2014 has been a surprisingly fruitful year for studies of John Quincy Adams, and Edel s book is in many ways the most intelligent of the bunch. The Adams who emerges from his pages is a fittingly complex figure, as often at war with his own nature as he was with the petty partisanship or Southern slaveholding of his day. Edel s readers will take away from his book a new appreciation of how much the United States they know owes to this early President they ve scarcely heard of.--Steve Donoghue"Open Letters Monthly" (10/02/2014)"

Descripción HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 211 x 147 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. America goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy --John Quincy Adams s famous words are often quoted to justify noninterference in other nations affairs. Yet when he spoke them, Adams was not advocating neutrality or passivity but rather outlining a national policy that balanced democratic idealism with a pragmatic understanding of the young republic s capabilities and limitations. America s rise from a confederation of revolutionary colonies to a world power is often treated as inevitable, but Charles N. Edel s provocative biography of Adams argues that he served as the central architect of a grand strategy that shaped America s rise. Adams s particular combination of ideas and policies made him a critical link between the founding generation and the Civil War-era nation of Lincoln. Examining Adams s service as senator, diplomat, secretary of state, president, and congressman, Edel s study of this extraordinary figure reveals a brilliant but stubborn man who was both visionary prophet and hard-nosed politician. Adams s ambitions on behalf of America s interests, combined with a shrewd understanding of how to counter the threats arrayed against them, allowed him to craft a multitiered policy to insulate the nation from European quarrels, expand U.S. territory, harness natural resources, develop domestic infrastructure, education, and commerce, and transform the United States into a model of progress and liberty respected throughout the world. While Adams did not live to see all of his strategy fulfilled, his vision shaped the nation s agenda for decades afterward and continues to resonate as America pursues its place in the twenty-first-century world.
