Agony and Eloquence by Daniel L. Mallock Book Summary
A political historian examines the vital friendship and rivalry of two American Founding Fathers against the backdrop of the French revolution.
Agony and Eloquence is the story of the greatest friendship in American history and the revolutionary times in which it was made, ruined, and finally renewed. In the wake of Washington’s retirement, longtime friends Thomas Jefferson and John Adams came to represent the opposing political forces struggling to shape America’s future. Adams’s victory in the presidential election of 1796 brought Jefferson into his administration, but as a conflicted and confrontational vice president. The bloody Republican revolution in France finally brought their political differences to a bitter pitch.
In Mallock’s take on this fascinating period, French foreign policy and revolutionary developments—from the fall of the Bastille to the fall of the Jacobins and the rise of Napoleon—form an illuminating counterpoint to events and relationships in Philadelphia and Washington.
