MEDIA REVIEWS
In continuing his laudable Art of American Power series, William Nester rubs the sheen off two of America s most famous founding fathers and shows that as presidents, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison naively engaged in economic and political policies that proved far more deadly to American interests than the armies and navies of its foes. Much more than a history lesson, there are strong warnings here for the present as Nester reminds us that a nation s ultimate foundation of power is its economy. An insightful portrait of the early missteps of American foreign policy. Walter R. Borneman, author of 1812: The War That Forged a Nation--Walter R. Borneman"
