Washington: The Indispensable ManWashington: The Indispensable Man by James Thomas Flexner

Any good biography is not only a portrait of the subject, it is a doorway that opens into a place and a time, and Flexner’s book is rich with this kind of detail. “The “Wild West” was then on the Atlantic seacoast,” he writes of Virginia in 1675, the year the first Washington came to America.

There, that gives you a little perspective on the time.
