"Henry Adams was one of the most powerful and original minds to confront the American scene from the Civil War to World War I. Though a man of the modern world. [Adams'] political ideals [were] shaped by his presidential ancestors, great-grandfather John Adams and grandfather John Quincy Adams. 'The Education of Henry Adams' is both a brilliant memoir and a profound meditation on the extraordinary developments in science, politics, religion, and society that so transformed the world as he knew it." [Pub. Info] Britannica refers to it as one of the most important autobiographies in Western literature. Pulitzer Prize (awarded postumously).
