Obsahy: A general nurses his wounds --
The quarrelsome men of Gotham --
The new Caesar's long shadow --
The temptations of a vice president --
Politicians in the wilderness --
A wary candidate tests the waters --
From migraine to miracle --
Resist, resist, resist the demagogues! --
Does impeachment justify secession? --
Mudslingers front and center --
From the low road to the depths --
A distracted dictator and an etiquette-mad president --
A ruined politician has a midnight visitor --
Light in the labyrinth --
Honor's deadly ritual --
Why soldiers why? --
This is a mortal wound, doctor --
Muffled drums and beckoning destiny.
Odpovědnost: Thomas Fleming.

Anotace:

In this retelling of the fatal duel between Hamilton and Burr, historian Fleming takes the reader into the post-revolutionary world of 1804, a chaotic and fragile time in the young country as well as a time of tremendous global instability. The success of the French Revolution and the proclamation of Napoleon as First Consul for Life had enormous impact on men like Hamilton and Burr, feeding their own political fantasies at a time of perceived Federal government weakness and corrosion. Their hunger for fame spawned antagonisms that wreaked havoc on themselves and their families and threatened to destabilize the fragile young American republic. From that poisonous brew came the tangle of regret and anger and ambition that drove the two to their murderous confrontation in Weehawken, New Jersey. This is authoritative history at its most readable.--From publisher description.
