In The Intimate Lives of the Founding Fathers from Smithsonian Books, historian Thomas Fleming, author of The Perils of Peace, offers a fresh look at the critical role of women in the lives of Washington, Franklin, Adams, Jefferson, Hamilton, and Madison. Fleming nimbly takes readers through a great deal of early American history, as our founding fathers struggle to reconcile the private and public-and often deal with a media every bit as gossip-seeking and inflammatory as ours today.

Reads like the infamous yellow journalism.

Much more gossipy than academic!
