Henry Adams (1838 - 1918) was the son of a Boston politician; both his father his grandfather and great-grandfather had been presidents of the United States. After Harvard, Adams acted as secretary to his father before turning to journalism and then to writing history, in the hope that the past would provide what the present would not - a rational order or science of social progress. This volume contains seven important selections from the historical, biographical and autobiographical works that occupied Adams from 1870 to his death.
