John Adams: America's Greatest Founding Father (MP3 download)

By C. Bradley Thompson

 


For decades, John Adams was America's forgotten founding  father. Today,  however, he is enjoying a justly deserved renaissance. Based on Professor Thompson's award-winning book, John Adams and the Spirit of Liberty, these two lectures present Adams as America's greatest founding statesman. Special attention is given to the central role Adams played  in developing and then implementing  the principles of the American Revolution. The first lecture provides an overview of Adam's life and political career and an in-depth examination of his early thought. The second  presents  Adam's theories of human nature and constitutional construction.
