Times Literary Supplement Learns about Gallatin


The 3/25 Times Literary Supplement delves into Nicholas Dungan’s critically acclaimed Gallatin: America’s Swiss Founding Father. The full article isn’t online, but here’s an excerpt:

Dungan’s Book retraces in detail Gallatin’s family history in Geneva as well as his subsequent career in the United States, using his private correspondence to highlight his shifting perspectives on ongoing events. Published on the 250th anniversary of Gallatin’s birth, his biography is clearly designed as a belated official tribute, providing a useful ground for any further scholarly research on the subject; it does moreover offer an interesting example of how modern representative regimes took shape from the constant confrontation of the different national traditions.
