Abstract:

A central political figure in the first post-Revolutionary generation, Felix Grundy (17751840) epitomized the American democrat who so famously fascinated Alexis de Tocqueville.

In DemocracyÆs Lawyer, the first comprehensive biography of Grundy since 1940, J. Roderick Heller reveals how GrundyÆs life typifies the archetypal, postfounding fathers generation that forged AmericaÆs.
