Author: John Lamberton Harper

Alexander Hamilton (1757-1804) was an illegitimate West Indian
emigrant who became the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury.
American Machiavelli focuses on Hamilton's controversial
activities as foreign policy adviser and aspiring military
leader. In the first major study of his foreign policy role in 30
years, John Lamberton Harper describes a decade of bitter
division over the role of the Federal government in the economy
during the 1790s and draws parallels between Hamilton and the
sixteenth century Italian political adviser, Niccolo Machiavelli.
Harper provides an original and highly readable account of
Hamiltonas famous clashes with Thomas Jefferson and John Adams,
and his key role in defining the U.S. national security
