Heirs of the Founders

In Heirs of the Founders, New York Times bestselling historian, professor, and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist H. W. Brands narrates the story of America’s second generation of political heavyweights and the ways in which their clashes and compromises shaped our democracy.  Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and John Calhoun took upon themselves the task of completing the unfinished work of the Founding Fathers, wrestling for four decades with Constitutional issues and sparring with each other. In riveting style, Brands unveils the drama of these relationships during a precarious time in early United States history.
