Críticas:

"Washington's steady presence and regal confidence more than compensated for his poor performance in the field against British generals, themselves every bit as striking in their mediocrity as he." "If Adams was the loftiest of the scholars at the First Congress, Thomas Jefferson was the most intricate character, gifted as writer, architect, farmer - and, in a corrupt moment, he allowed his cook to give birth to that unique dessert later known as the Baked Alaska." "Adams alone saw virtues in monarchy - not England's but one of our own, with titles for the men of power (due to his elliptical shape he was dubbed His Rotundity).

Reseña del editor:

Gore Vidal, one of the master stylists of American literature and an acute observer of American life and history, turns his literary and historiographic talent to a portrait of the formidable trio of George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. In "Inventing a Nation", Vidal transports the reader into the minds, the living rooms (and bedrooms), the convention halls and the salons of Washington, Jefferson, Adams and others. We come to know these men, their opinions of each other, their worries about money and their concerns about creating a viable democracy.
