Alexander Hamilton by award-winning historian Ron Chernow fills a major gap in our understanding of the founding of the United States and of the founders themselves. Hamilton had as much, and perhaps more, of an impact on the early history of the United States than some if his better-known founding brethren. And he had an amazing life: an illegitimate birth in the Caribbean and an orphaned childhood; his role as George Washington's chief of staff and the new nation's first Treasury Secretary; his untimely death in a duel with Aaron Burr. David McCullough wrote: "Alexander Hamilton was one of the most brilliant men of his brilliant time, and one of the most fascinating figures in all of American history…His importance to the founding of the new nation, and thus to the whole course of American history, can hardly be overstated…This is grand-scale biography at its best." A smash hit based on the book opened on Broadway in 2015.
