Summary
"Through incisive portraits of the most influential journalists of the 1790s, Scandal & Civility moves beyond the usual cast of "revolutionary brothers" and "founding fathers" to offer a fresh perspective on a seemingly familiar story. Marcus Daniel demonstrates how partisan journalists, both Federalist and Democratic-Republican, were instrumental in igniting and expanding vital debates over the character of political leaders, the nature of representative government, and, ultimately, the role of the free press itself." "Daniel's narrative captures this key period of American history in all its contentious complexity. This book is a timely reminder that discord and difference were essential to the very creation of our political culture."--Jacket
