Summary
  • An analysis of the lesser-known contributions of pragmatic conservatives who worked diligently throughout the American Revolution to combat radicalism and establish key economic foundations also offers insight into the political disagreements among the nation's founding fathers that threatened to divide the fledgling nation. -- Provided by publisher
  • A financial crash and an endless economic crisis. A Congress so divided it barely functioned. Welcome to the world of the Founding Fathers. The Revolution was nearly derailed by extremists who wanted to do too much, too quickly and who refused to rest until they had remade American society. If not for a small circle of conservatives who kept radicalism in check and promoted capitalism, a strong military, and the preservation of tradition, our country would be vastly different today
