Joseph J. Ellis, Peter S. Onuf, Richard A. Ryerson, and Gordon S. Wood have, each in his own way, provided helpful advice on this project. I am particularly thankful to Joe Ellis for so graciously abdicating his own project to edit a volume of Adams’s writings so that I might proceed with the present volume.
My greatest thanks go to my family. It was not until Henry, Samuel, and Islay came along that I could fully understand what John Adams meant by the “spirit of liberty.” They show me every day what this spirit is and they inspire me to nurture and protect it. And it is their mother who steels me every day to pursue justitiam ruat coelum.
