JMC Fellow Luke Mayville to Join Discussion at National Constitution Center

John Adams and the Fear of Aristocracy

National Constitution Center
(525 Arch St., Philadelphia, PA)

Wednesday, February 1st
12:00 PM


Long before “the one percent” became a protest slogan, John Adams feared the power of a class he called simply “the few.” Authors Luke Mayville and Richard Alan Ryerson discuss the second president’s most intimate political thoughts. Tom Donnelly, senior fellow in constitutional studies at the National Constitution Center, moderates.

A book sale and signing of John Adams and the Fear of American Oligarchy (Mayville) and John Adams’s Republic (Ryerson) will follow the program.
