"Washington oversaw two startups--the army and the presidency. He chaired the most important meeting in American history--the Constitutional Convention. He rose from being a major in the militia to become one of the most famous men in the world. At every stage in his career he had to deal with changing circumstances, from tobacco prices to geopolitics, and with wildly different classes of men, from frontiersmen to aristocrats. Washington acted as public health administrator, diversified agri-businessman, expert communicator, unflinching futurist, and brilliant manager of people."--Cover flap.
