The noblest minds : fame, honor, and the American founding
Ever since Douglas Adair demonstrated that a love of fame was central to the American founding, political scientists and historians have viewed the founders in a new light. In The Noblest Minds, ten distinguished scholars examine this passion for fame and honor and demonstrate its significance in the development of American democracy. The book is devoted to essays on individual founders, as well as chapters analyzing the Founders' accomplishment in reviving political science and exploring the problem of honor in the modern world.
