New York Times bestseller Revolutionary Summer: The Birth of American Independence

Pulitzer Prize for Founding Brothers: the Revolutionary Generation

National Book Award for American Sphinx, a biography of Thomas Jefferson

New York Times bestseller His Excellency: George Washington

In his latest book, Joseph Ellis once again looks back to the American founding for wisdom from Jefferson, Adams, Madison, and Washington. What did the words “the pursuit of happiness” and “we the people” mean then, and what do they mean now? How can the Founders help us frame the arguments we need to have about race, economic inequality, jurisprudence, and foreign policy? As the title suggests, and the Founders knew, argument itself is the answer.
