"They were the best of enemies, two stalwart men of the national stage whose differences--personal and political--seemed to capture larger conflicts churning within our young republic. In this fascinating dual biography, Rick Beyer brings these two towering figures to vivid life on the page. In Beyer's fine hands, the long feud between Burr and Hamilton seems part opera buffa, part Greek tragedy. As the pages keep turning, we feel ourselves pulled along a collision course--one that still has powerful resonance today."
