Benjamin Franklin: A Biography
Phoenix, 2001 - 530 pages
The first full-scale biography of Franklin in more than 60 years. This fully documented account of the most versatile man of his age paints a lively portrait of the writer who invented the lightning conductor; the politician who spent years as an emissary in London trying to prevent the Revo-lutionary War; and the statesman who served as the US representative in Paris during the war, intriguing for French aid and American victory. A masterly work.
