Summary   In the first major work on Adams’s political thought in over thirty years, C. Bradley Thompson takes issue with the notion that Adams’s thought is irrelevant to the development of American ideas. Focusing on Adams’s major writings, Thompson elucidates and reevaluates his political and constitutional thought by interpreting it within the tradition of political philosophy stretching from Plato to Montesquieu. Skillfully blending history and political science, Thompson’s work shows how the spirit of liberty animated Adams’s life and reestablishes this forgotten Revolutionary as an independent and important thinker.
