    A biography fully commensurate with Hamilton's character which captures his life with judiciousness and verve, tracing the totality of his unflaggingly active life. Chernow situates Hamilton as the founding figure without whose political and financial strategic brilliance the United States may not have survived its early, operational days. Hamilton, our creator of public finance, was also a man of titanic disputes and countless exploits. From his over-wrought upbringing his `honor above familial obligation', fatal duel with the sitting Vice-President Aaron Burr, Hamilton arrives through this lensing a man of controversial and tragic genius.

    Bankers, philanthropists, scholars, socialites, artists, and politicians, the Warburgs stood at the pinnacle of German (and, later, of German-American) Jewry. They forged economic dynasties, built mansions and estates, assembled libraries, endowed charities, and advised a German kaiser and two American presidents. But their very success made the Warburgs lightning rods for anti-Semitism, and their sense of patriotism became increasingly dangerous in a Germany that had declared Jews the enemy. Notes, Index. B&W illus. 820p.
