"In lively prose and with keen understanding, Paul Aron sets forth the personal animosities and grudges that drove politics in the new nation." Robert Gross, author of The Minutemen and Their World Think partisanship has never been so bad? Think again. Founding Feuds shows the founders not only debating but also smearing, screaming, spitting, and occasionally shooting at each othertheir politics every bit as polarized as ours. "Through his lively and often surprising descriptions of the founders' brawls, disagreements, public denunciations, court battles, and lethal duels, Paul Aron makes the important argument that many of their feuds actually strengthened the young republic." Susan Dunn, author of Dominion of Memories.<
