Vol 2: In The American Revolution(1775-83)
Vol 3: And The New Nation (1783 -93)
Vol 4: Anguish And Farewell (1793-99) This psychological biography of Alexander Hamilton concentrate on the first twenty~six years of the statesman’s life ~ up to the end of the American Revolution ~ during which his character was established and his writings, not yet clogged with innumerable details, were at their most personally revealing. Unraveling the enigma that Hamilton has presented to two centuries of historians, Mr. Flexner demonstrates that the genius was the most mentally disturbed of the Founding Fathers and that his destructive aberrations, as well as his constructive gifts, were, as his career ran on, built into the basic structure of the United States. James Thomas Flexner, who has won a Parkman Prize, a National Book Award, and a rarely given Special Pulitzer Prize Citation (for his four~volume George Washington), brings to the startling conclusions he reaches in The Young Hamilton the perceptions of an experienced biographer and the knowledge of a veteran historian
