John H. Rhodehamel, Gordon S. Wood:

The Great Experiment: George Washington and the American Republic - edition reliée, livre de poche

ISBN: 0300076142

Gebundene Ausgabe, [EAN: 9780300076141], Yale Univ Pr, Englisch, Englisch, Englisch, Yale Univ Pr, Book, Yale Univ Pr, Yale Univ Pr, A catalog for a traveling exhibition of art and artifacts from the life of George Washington, this elegant volume also provides an excellent overview history of Washington's life. The biography of Washington is, as would be expected, positive, yet the author, John Rhodehamel, a curator of American History at the Huntington Library in Los Angeles, does not ignore some often overlooked aspects of Washington's personality, specifically his temper, pride, and ambition. Indeed, the "Great Experiment" of the title applies as much to Washington's efforts to transform his own personality as to his enormous contributions to the founding of the United States. Rhodehamel documents how Washington, as he matured, subjugated the fierce ambition that had brought him to international repute during the French and Indian War and eventually made perhaps his greatest contribution to the newly independent colonies by modestly emphasizing the primacy of civilian rule. The text presents Washington's story, up through his stormy second term as president and his death soon after, in readable and often entertaining terms, and the visual component of the book deserves special mention. Besides the many photographs of Washington artifacts and contemporaneous artistic depictions of him, the fine photographic reproduction of letters and journal entries in Washington's own hand does much to humanize a person all too often regarded as a distant and incomprehensible icon. --Robert McNamara, 56833011, Historisch, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 56870011, Präsidenten & Staatsoberhäupter, 56858011, Politiker & Persönlichkeiten, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65316011, Revolution & Gründung, 65254011, USA, 65196011, Amerika, 65140011, Geschichte, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 66034011, Belletristik, 67209011, Aufsätze, 66035011, Briefe & Korrespondenz, 67196011, Bücher & Lesen, 67212011, Comics, 66159011, Dramatik, 67917011, Erotik, 66036011, Frauenromane, 67931011, Geschichte & Kritik, 66093011, Klassiker, 68079011, Kurzgeschichten, 67215011, Literarisch, 67966011, Lyrik, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 68085011, Weltliteratur, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 69091011, Führung, 69077011, Politik, 69028011, Sachbücher, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 208622031, Gebundene Ausgabe, 208621031, Format (binding_browse-bin), 366250011, Refinements, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

This is the catalogue of an exhibition organized by The Huntington Library with additional material from The Gilder Lehrman Collection and the Pierpont Morgan Library. The dj blurb says this book about Washington brings him "vividly to life. - a man who was born a loyal subject of the British crown and became the leader of a radical revolution, a victorious military leader who relinquished the trappings of power to return to farming, a reluctant statesman who forged the institutions of a popular government that have endured." The color illustrations relate to Washington and include "original documents, contemporary portraits, artifacts, and personal memorabilia of Washington and his family." Laid in loose is an invitation to a lecture and discussion re Washington at the Clements Library at the opening reception of an exhibit titled, "George Washington: Man and Monument / Events that Shaped a Life and Created an American Icon" in 2001. The book and its dj are in As New condition. [WAH-1738]
