Chernow "vividly re-creates the whole sweep of Hamilton's turbulent life-- his exotic, brutal upbringing; his titanic feuds with celebrated rivals; his pivotal role in defining the shape of the Federal government; his shocking illicit romances; his enlightened abolitionism; and his famous death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July 1804.
