by Ron Chernow
Alexander Hamilton was an illegitimate self-taught orphan from the Caribbean who overcame all the odds to become George
Washington's aide-de-camp and the first Treasury Secretary of the United States.
Few figures in American history are more controversial than Alexander Hamilton. In this masterful work, Chernow shows
how the political and economic power of America today is the result of Hamilton's willingness to champion ideas that were
often wildly disputed during his time. He charts his titanic feuds with Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Monroe and Burr;
his highly public affair with Maria Reynolds; his loving marriage to his loyal wife Eliza; and the notorious duel with
Aaron Burr that led to his death in July 1804.
