New Book: JMC Partners on the Writings of George Washington

The Political Writings of George Washington

Edited by Carson Holloway and Bradford Wilson


JMC faculty partners Carson Holloway and Bradford Wilson have recently edited a two-volume set on the writings of George Washington’s writings on politics and reflections on his own life:

The Political Writings of George Washington includes Washington’s enduring writings on politics, prudence, and statesmanship in two volumes. It is the only complete collection of his political thought, which historically, has received less attention than the writings of other leading founders such as Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Adams, and Alexander Hamilton. Covering his life of public service―from his young manhood, when he fought in the French and Indian Wars, through his time as commander-in-chief of the revolutionary army; his two terms as America’s first president, and his brief periods of retirement, during which he followed and commented on American politics astutely―the volumes also include first-hand accounts of Washington’s death and reflections on his legacy by those who knew or reflected deeply on his significance. The result is a more thorough understanding of Washington’s political thought and the American founding.
