The Adamses 1735-1918 - America's First Dinasty
Brookhiser Richard
2002

The Adamses were America's longest dynasty, the closest thing to a royal family USA has ever known. The Adamses played a leading role in America's affairs for nearly two centuries - from John, the self-taught lawyer who rose to the highest office in the government he helped to create; to John Quincy, the child prodigy who followed his father to the White House and fought slavery in Congress; to Charles Francis, the Civil War diplomat: to Henry, the brilliant scholar and journalist. Indeed, the history of the Adams family can be read as the history of America itself.
