I have a new book in my sights – Robert Wright’s One Nation Under Debt: Hamilton, Jefferson, and the History of What We Owe (McGraw-Hill, 2008). One of our house interpreters discovered Wright’s work a few years ago and ever since it’s been an ongoing quest to acquire everything Robert Wright ever wrote. Said interpreter’s glowing opinion is seconded by the reviewer of this newest book for the Journal of American History: “If I could write like Wright, I would be thrilled. Some passages in the book are stunning – almost poetic.” (Remember, this is a book about debt we’re talking about.)
