"There have been earlier studies of the career of FrancisLieber, but this book will rank as the definitive biography.The author has not only exhausted the archival material andthe voluminous correspondence between this extraordinaryGermain emigre scolar and the hundreds of men who he knowduring his sojourn in America from 1827-1872, but he usedthem to produce a very readable account of Lieber's careerand political and social philosophy."
