"Alexander Hamilton" by Ron Chernow
I just started this book which I received for my birthday so I can't review it yet. But as I proceed, I'd enjoy discussing it. Anybody in?
In the Introduction to this 2004 biography, the author tells us that he is drawing on vast volumes of Hamilton's papers that were published in the 1960s-80s as well as some previously unknown essays by Hamilton that he uncovered in his research and primary sources from records in Europe and the West Indies. A lot of this material wouldn't have been available to earlier biographers, so this should be interesting.
