This text traces the wide-ranging influence of Lafayette's public and personal life, including his contributions to the emergence of nationalist ideologies in Europe and America, his extensive connection with liberal political theorists, and his close friendships with prominent writers. Lloyd Kramer argues that Lafayette's experiences reveal how public figures can symbolize the aspirations of a society as a whole.
