The changing political thought of John Adams by John R Howe( Book )

16 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in English and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The quality of the American character, the structure of American society, and the meaning of America's historical experience all had important implications for John Adams' political thought. Professor Howe explores the relationships that developed between the satisfactions of Adam's life and Adams' outlook on American society. He concludes that as Adams' understanding of the American character and its values changed, so did his evaluation of American society and its political problems. Originally published in 1966.
